Turnout the focus of Tunisia’s second-round poll
Polls are open in Tunisia for the second round of voting for parliament, which was largely stripped of its powers during President Kais Saied’s power grab 18 months ago.
Registered voters largely boycotted the first round in December, when the turnout was around 11%.
Correspondents says many Tunisians are frustrated with the president’s political chokehold since a new constitution was put in place last year.
People are increasingly preoccupied by economic stagnation and rising unemployment, leaving many failing to see how electing a largely toothless parliament might improve their lives.
