With the Constituent Assembly elections two days away, the state news agency, TAP (Tunisie Afrique Presse), has released the following facts and figures:

  • There are 4,439,527 registered voters.
  • Of these, 4,100,812 voters are in Tunisia and 338,715 registered voters are abroad.
  • There are 7,213 voting stations in Tunisia and 479* abroad, where 50,000 agents were deployed.
  • There are 11,618 candidates for the constitutional assembly elections.
  • In the 27 electoral districts, there are 655 independents, 828 parties’ lists, and 34 coalition lists, thus a total of 1,517 lists.
  • In the 6 electoral districts abroad, there are 72 independents, 66 parties’ lists, and 7 coalition lists, thus a total of 145 lists with 474 candidates.
  • Men vs. Women heads of lists: 93% men, 7% women.
  • 50% of the heads of lists are older than 46 years.
  • The youngest head of list is in Ben Arous and is 23 years old.
  • The oldest candidate head of list is in Tunis 1 and is 81 years old.
  • 5,143 observers are accredited by ISIE for the elections, out of 10,000 applicants for the accreditation.
  • 533 foreign observers and 15 foreign organization will observe the elections.
  • About 1,500 journalists will cover the elections.

*Tunisia Live learned at an ISIE press conference this morning that this number has been revised to 437 voting stations abroad. Several were closed in Libya because of the security situation there and several were closed around the world because there were not enough registered voters in those regions to justify a voting station.

In addition, TAP gave the following details about the distribution of candidate lists across the Tunisian voting districts:

    Thanks for the feedback below. I do believe they need to publish the EXACT totals for ALL partys if they are done counting in 1 region.

    Also if they have a partial result, they should say what percentage of the total the partial result represents, as it may be to early to estimate how many seats a party has won.
