#Tunisian Elections: Tunisians to Vote in First Municipal Elections


Since 2011 uprisingVoters in Tunisia participated in Municipal Polls for the first since 2011 after the ouster of former President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali during the Arab Spring revolution. 
 
This election was expected to set the tone for subsequent democratic processes as the country recovers from the aftermath of the revolution. However, only one in three eligible voters cast their votes, an indication of the frustration at the slow pace of change since the 2011 revolution. 
 
Over 57,000 candidates contested for municipal positions in the Municipal polls. Most of the contestants are women and Young people in Tunisia. 
 
Tunisians have already voted in parliamentary and presidential elections since the 2011 fall of dictator Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, but municipal polls had been delayed four times due to logistical, administrative and political deadlocks.
