Tunisia finally passes progressive constitution

Published: 01.27.14, 01:30 / Israel News

After decades of dictatorship and two years of arguments and compromises, Tunisians on Sunday finally have a new constitution laying the foundations for a new democracy.

 

The document is groundbreaking as one of the most progressive constitutions in the Arab world - and for the fact that it got written at all. It passed late Sunday by 200 votes out of 216 in the Muslim Mediterranean country that inspired uprisings across the region after overthrowing a dictator in 2011. (AP)
