Voting begins today for third parliamentary polls in Tunisia

AIR
In Tunisia, voting began today for the third parliamentary polls of a successful but hectic transition to democracy since the North African country's 2011 revolution.
 
Polling stations opened for the seven-million electorate at 8:00 am Local Time (1230 PM IST) and will close 12 hours later. Preliminary official results are scheduled for Wednesday although exit polls will be released from late today.

The vote comes two weeks after the first round of a presidential election that swept aside traditional political parties in favour of independent candidates, a trend likely to be repeated in the ballot for MPs.

More than 15,000 candidates on 1,500 lists are contesting 217 seats in a parliament dominated by Ennahdha in alliance with centrist party Nidaa Tounes that has been decimated by infighting.


While the presidential race may have overshadowed the legislative contest, parliament is responsible for tackling the main challenges facing Tunisian society.
