Tunisian Islamist leader re-elected as party head
(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - Rachid Ghannouchi, 71, was re-elected by 72.58 percent of the vote in the early hours of the morning Tuesday.
Over the past five days the Islamist Ennahda Party held its first party conference in public after years of a clandestine existence suppressed by Tunisia's since deposed dictatorship.
The party conference has been closely watched because Ennahda holds the most seats in the assembly elected in October charged with running the country and writing its new constitution.
