Mabruk Tunisia! An election to be proud of

To say that the Tunisian election is a critical is somewhat of an understatement, but it carries far more than symbolic value, writes Dr Benjamin MacQueen, deputy director of the Global Terrorism Research Centre.

With the close of polling in Tunisia after Sunday’s vote, Rachid Ghannouchi’s Ennahda (Renaissance) Party appear to have excelled even their own high expectations. With several seats still in doubt, and results only slowly emerging, it appears that Ennahda may win as many as 90 seats, or over 40% of the 217 seat Constitutive Assembly.
