Tunisian Parliamentary Election Dates 2019
Tunisian Parliamentary Election Date: 6 October 2019
Parliamentary elections are scheduled to take place in Tunisia on 6 October 2019.
Prior to the revolution, elections were held every five to six years and elected both the president and members of both legislative branches. Following the revolution, elections were held for a Constituent Assembly to decide on a new constitution for Tunisia.
From 1956 to 2011, the government and the Constitutional Democratic Rally—originally known as the Neo Destour (1934-1964) and the Socialist Destourian Party (1964-1988)–were effectively one. Although Tunisia was only formally a one-party state from 1963 to 1981, the opposition was usually barely tolerated. With the revolution, several parties have emerged. While there are two numerically major parties–Nidaa Tounes and the Ennahda Movement—no one party has a realistic chance of governing alone.
