Presidential elections were held in Algeria on 16 November 1995, in the midst of the Algerian Civil War. The result was a victory for Liamine Zeroual, head of the High Council of State at the time, who won 61% of the vote. The Armed Islamic Group of Algeria threatened to kill anyone who voted, with the slogan "one vote, one bullet", but (official) voter turnout was 74.9%.
Delegations of observers came from the Arab League, the African Union, and the United Nations, and reported no major problems. The GIA had threatened to kill voters, but the election passed with few attacks. The turnout was high, despite the three largest parties of the previous elections (FIS, FLN, and FFS) calling for a boycott.
