Many months after a man in Tunisia set himself on fire to protest his country's lack of a viable democratic government, some 90 percent of eligible voters in the country cast their votes on Sunday. Over 4.1 million people cast their ballots in the first democratic election from the nation that ignited the Arab Spring. Early signs show that the once banned Islamist Ennahda party is leading, possibly indicating a shift for the secular nation.
Namia Nour moved to the U.S. from Tunisia 14 years ago and is the founder of Tunisian Cultural and Information Center USA. She voted by absentee ballot, and talks about the experience.
