Tunisia is holding the second presidential elections following the 2011 uprising that led to the ousting of President of Tunisia Ben Ali and caused the Arab Spring, reports BBC.
There are 26 presidential candidates, including two women.
The first presidential elections following the Arab Spring were held in 2014 and ended with the victory of Beji Caid Essebsi.
Beji Caid Essebsi is the oldest elected president in the world. Earlier, he had declared that he isn’t preparing to run in the elections.
The acting President of Tunisia is the country’s parliamentary speaker Mohamed Ennaceur.
