Following the adoption of a democratic constitution in January 2014, Tunisia’s legislative elections held on 26 October 2014 – the country’s first democratic election to a permanent parliament – added another milestone to the country’s broadly promising trajectory. Sunday 26’s election is likely to lead to the formation of the first non-provisional democratic coalition government. Tunisia has a long way ahead towards fully ensuring political consolidation, economic and social justice, and sustainable security for its citizens. But in spite of considerable remaining challenges, Tunisia today shoulders the Arab world’s hopes for genuine democratisation.
