Parliamentary elections on Oct. 26 and a presidential poll a month later, another step towards full democracy in the country that toppled its autocratic ruler in 2011. Lawmakers approved for the first round of a presidential election to be held on Nov. 23 and a second round at the end of December.
The polls will be the first since Tunisia adopted a new constitution this year, and the second since the former president Zine El Abidine Ben Ali fled the country after mass protests against him in 2011.
Islamist party Ennahda won the first free election after Ben Ali’s fall and formed the first government, but the assassination of two secular opposition leaders triggered a political crisis.
