Latest Tunisian Results

As of early evening Tunis time the officially declared results were in for 159 of the 217 Constituent Assembly Seats and the totals were 65 for Al-Nahda, the CPR and Aridha Chaabia nearly tied for second with 23 for Aridha and 22 for CPR (for these parties see my post of yesterday); Ettakatol with 13; the PDP with 7, and the rest scattered among many other parties. This still does not include official returns from the two Tunis constituencies.

Many estimates are that Al-Nahda will end up with something around 88 seats in the 217-seat Assembly.
