Tunisia Presidential Election: Voters reject political establishment; Back Outsiders 

With Sunday’s vote, the public voiced its discontent with a stagnating economy and lack of political and economic overhauls.

This election is the second free presidential poll since the 2011 uprising that toppled ex-President Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali and sparked the Arab Spring.

It was brought forward after the death in July of the country’s first democratically elected president, Beji Caid Essebsi, who took office in 2014.
