The electoral law approved on May 1, 2014 states the eligibility requirements of candidates as follows:
To be registered as voter in voter listsThat sounds like, well, like democracy. (You have to be Tunisian by birth and 35, but the same is true in the US. Nothing here about having to be male, just Muslim.)
To be a holder of Tunisian citizenship since birth
To be a Muslim
To be at least 35 years of age when filing for candidacy
To have the support of ten members of the National Constituent Assembly or ten thousand voters.
Why isn't this on the evening news?
