The Kairouan Regional Instance of the Independent High Authority for the Election (ISIE) painted a chart on the Kairouan Medina’s walls in order to present the district’s candidate lists to voters.

Tunisian citizens will vote on October 23rd for a Constituent Assembly to draft a new constitution for the nation. In Kairouan, over 70 candidate lists are registered, and Ahmed Kilani, President of ISIE Kairouan, told Tunisia Live on September 19th that they were searching for a way to present such an overwhelming amount of information to voters.

The Medina’s wall is a historical monument that dates from the 18th century. The decision to paint the chart on its wall provoked anger among some citizens and historians. A few bloggers published  the picture of the wall on Facebook and expressed their disappointment, urging ISIE Kairouan to erase the chart.

Al Chourouk reports that Kilani explains there was a misunderstanding between  municipality employees and ISIE Kairouan. The chart was supposed to be on the wall of the Art University, located just in front of the Medina.
