According to preliminary estimates, secular party Nidaa Tounes looks to win the Tunisian elections, followed by the Islamist party Ennahda who won the elections in 2011. The elections are considered historical and

crucial to Tunisia’s transition to full democracy. During the 2011 elections to the Constituent Assembly (NCA) was the main question what role Islam should have in politics, while this year’s elections shifted the focus to the economy and security. The definitive results are expected to be announced on November 14. Elections for the presidency has been set with a first round of voting on November 23, followed by a second round at the end of December.
