Low turnout as Tunisians vote for new chamber

TUNIS: Tunisians on Sunday largely shunned polling stations in the first elections for a new chamber of parliament under a constitution pushed through last year by President Kais Saied.
Opponents of Saied argue the election is the latest step in the president’s “authoritarian” agenda.
Saied, a former law professor who was elected president in 2019, seized executive powers two years later, sacking the government, dissolving parliament and declaring he would rule by decree.
