Tunisians vote into parliamentary election

Last updated on October 6, 2019

Tunisians started voting on Sunday to get a parliament that has to address chronic financial issues at a moment when political novices are mounting a challenge to the established parties.

Voters queued outside polling stations in the capital Tunis, only eight years later climbing to throw autocratic rule and contemporary democracy at a revolution that prompted the”Arab Spring.”

However, the failure of repeated coalition authorities that grouped the older royal elite and the long-banned moderate Islamist Ennahda celebration to tackle a weak economy and declining public agencies has disillusioned many Republicans.

Sunday’s vote for parliament is sandwiched between two rounds of a presidential election where turnout was low and which innovative two political newcomers into the runoff at the cost of major-party candidates.

It’s not apparent what that can imply for Sunday’s election, where Ennahda is among many parties expecting to emerge most votes, such as the core of Tunisia celebration of media mogul Nabil Karoui.
