Tunesia Leads the Way Again
Post-election Power Constellation Promising for Democratisation
This commentary argues that the electoral success of the moderate Islamist party, Ennahda, will do no harm to successful democratization in Tunisia. In fact, the emerging coalition of left-wing and Islamist parties will enjoy broad acceptance in the population if they demonstrate a good political and economic track record. To ensure this, Europe should continue to support the democratization process above all by demonstrating trust and patience.
