Neue tunesische Verfassung

New Tunisian constitution.

Three years after the Arab Spring started in Tunisia, the country’s Constituante, a constitution assembly elected in fall 2011, was voting on the articles of a new constitution that, ARD tagesschau.de said, was “modern” and guaranteed a civil society, equal rights for men and women and freedom of religion.

The new constitution may be passed as early as by the end of January 2014, after which new elections are to take place as quickly as possible.

The islamic Ennahda party voluntarily gave up power to clear the way for new elections, ARD reported.

“Certainly, the events in Egypt led to increased dialog and negotiation successes here in Tunisia,” said a spokesperson for the Ennahda party.
