Al-Nahda: 90 (or 91?) Seats Out of 217

I'll post a fuller analysis tomorrow, but with the final (though I don't think fully official) results in, Al-Nahda will have either 90 (or, from this count, 91), seats in the Tunisian Constituent Assembly, out of 217. A bit over 40%.

The surprise dark horse, Aridha Chaabia, has had its results disqualified in six districts due to improprieties, and may withdraw from the Assembly. I'll have more on that tomorrow.
