Tunisians will take to the polls on October 13 in the second round of the presidential election. Tunisia has been a democracy since 2011, when its people rose up in a revolution that ousted veteran autocrat Zine El-Abidine Ben Ali and inspired the “Arab Spring” uprisings. If Karoui wins election, it is unclear if he could be sworn into office in prison instead of the parliament chamber, or if the immunity the constitution gives presidents would apply to crimes not yet tried in court. A constitutional court mandated by the 2014 constitution which would normally adjudicate complex political questions has not yet been formed. The last parliament was unable to agree on which judges it should contain. Tunisia’s president has direct control over foreign and defense policy but can also obstruct legislation passed by the government and parliament.

Pray that there will be a fair and proper election process.
Pray that the people’s revolution will result in an appropriate government (The Bible, Numbers 27:18).
