About political parties in Tunisia
Published 11th April, 2011
Tunisia is going through a period of change, with the main political party, the Constitutional Democratic Rally (RCD) having been dissolved.
Prior to 2011 there were very few political parties and only the RCD with any real representation in the Chamber of Deputies. This means that almost any political party has a chance to do well in the forthcoming elections.
We have decided to list political parties, that have a website, individually; or where the party existed before the January 2011 revolution. All other political parties for which there is limited information have been included under Minor Parties. This is not an exhaustive list as the situation changes on the ground, but it does give an indication of the majority of known parties.
