Secularist Nidaa Tounes party wins Tunisia election
Tunisia’s secularist party Nidaa Tounes has won 85 seats in the country’s parliament following Sunday’s elections, official results show.
The governing Islamist Ennahda party won 69 seats in the 217-seat chamber.
The official results confirm earlier predictions and Ennahda officials have already urged Nidaa Tounes to form an inclusive government.
Tunisia’s transition to democratic rule after a 2011 revolt has been hailed as a regional success story.
The revolt was the first and least violent of the Arab Spring uprisings against autocratic governments across the region.
