Tunisia Votes in First Presidential Election since Arab Spring
Tunisians are voting Sunday in their first presidential election since the 2011 revolution that sparked the "Arab Spring."
More than 5.2 million eligible voters may cast ballots at some 4500 polling stations which will be open from 8 am to 6 pm local time, according to reports of Al Jazeera.
A total of 27 candidates are competing in the race, with Beji Caid Essebsi, leader of the secular Nidaa Tounes party, and incumbent Moncef Marzouki widely seen as the favorites.
Marzouki has been Interim President of Tunisia since Ben Ali was toppled in the 2011 uprising.
