Tunisian presidential elections postponed to November 17

Reading Time: 1 minute

Tunisia has delayed the first round of its presidential elections by one week to Nov. 17.
The initial date had been set for Nov. 10 but this conflicted with an Islamic holiday, when many Tunisians are travelling.

The parliamentary race is expected to be fought closely by the moderate Islamist Ennahda party, the more secular Tahya Tounes party of Prime Minister Youssef Chahed, and the Nidaa Tounes party led by Hafedh Caid Essebsi, the president’s son.
