Tunisia Elections: Key presidential aspirants begin campaign activities

Leading presidential aspirants seeking to occupy the top seat in Tunisia have started their campaign activities this week ahead of the presidential elections slated to take place on the 15 of September 2019.  

This will be the second presidential election after the overthrow of Zine El Abidine Ben Ali during the 2011 Arab Spring revolution and all is being done to use this election to consolidate the democratic gains Tunisia has chalked so far.  

The election will see the participation of some of the biggest names in Tunisian politics.  

There are 26 aspirants contesting for the presidency and they include the incumbent Prime Minister Youssef Chahed, Defence Minister Abdelkarim Zbidi, interim Parliamentary Speaker and Ennahdha Party Vice President Abdelfattah Mourou, a media mogul and owner of Nessma TV, Nabil Karoui as well as former President Moncef Marzouki.  

Security and the economic issues are  expected to dominate the campaign platforms.
