Ghannouchi to stand for parliamentary elections in Tunisia

Rached Ghannouchi, the leader of Tunisia’s Ennahda party, will stand in the next parliamentary elections in October, a move widely seen as an attempt to seek a leadership position in the country, reported by Reuters .Exiled in London for about two decades during the time of former president Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, Ghannouchi has been a major force since Tunisia’s 2011 revolution, but he has never run for any official position. The 78-year-old remains a dominant figure who critics say effectively controls the country in tandem with the President Beji Caid Essebsi, 92, often dubbed the “two sheikhs” in reference to their age.“The decision to present Ghannouchi at the top of the party’s electoral list in Tunis, is to have leaders of parties play a more important role at this crucial stage in the history of the democratic transition in Tunisia,” Ennahda party official Imed Khmiri told Reuters .
