EU: Tunisians enjoyed voting rights without obstacles

BRUSSELS, The European Union Tuesday said that Tunisians voted for the parliamentary elections held last Sunday in a “peaceful and orderly manner.” If the participation rate appears very low compared to the importance of the vote for the consolidation of democracy, Tunisians were able to freely exercise their political rights and vote without obstacles, noted Maja Kocijancic, EU spokesperson for foreign affairs, in a statement tonight.

She underlined the EU’s privileged partnership with Tunisia and reiterated the EU’s commitment to accompany the Tunisian authorities in the essential reform process to consolidate stability in the country.
