Algerian legislative election, 1991

The Algerian National Assembly elections of 1991 were cancelled by a military coup after the first round, triggering the Algerian Civil War; the military expressed concerns that the FIS, which was almost certain to win more than the 2/3 majority of seats required to change the Algerian Constitution, would end democracy and impose an Islamic state. Of 430 seats contested, 231 were won outright with 50% or more of the ballot; the remaining 199 would have proceeded to a second ballot contested only by the two candidates with the highest number of votes.
