Tunisia's Islamists seek 'consensual' presidential candidate

Tunisian Islamist former prime minister and member of the Ennahda party, Ali Larayedh (C) speaks in Tunis on June 19, 2014Tunisia’s main Islamist party on Thursday urged politicians to agree on a “consensual” presidential candidate, to assuage tensions that have plagued the country since the 2011 revolution. “We call on political parties to find a consensual candidate for the presidency, someone independent or who belongs to a political party,” said Ali Larayedh, a former premier and senior Ennahda member. Tunisia has been rocked by Islamist violence and political crises since the uprising that toppled longtime autocrat Zine El Abidine Ben Ali in January 2011, culminating with the assassination of two opposition politicians last year.
