Tunisia Begins Historic Vote

The first true multiparty national election in Tunisia since the ouster of strongman Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali in January is underway. It's a historic democratic poll, and voters will choose an assembly that will govern the country while also writing a new constitution. Concerns about religion and women's rights will be tested as liberals are facing an expected defeat by moderate Islamist party Ennahda.
