Sam Bollier, Al Jazeera
Ten months since the uprising that brought down long-time Tunisian ruler Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, 81 political parties - as well as hundreds of independent candidates - are slated to compete in an election to be held October 23. The election will send 217 Tunisians to serve in the Constituent Assembly, which will rewrite the country’s constitution and appoint a new government.
