突尼斯选举官员星期一开始正式清点议会选举的投票结果。这次选举是突尼斯在今年一月份实施新宪法以后的第一次议会选举。

初步投票结果星期一晚些时候向外界公布,最终投票结果星期四之前公布。

在投票前,温和的伊斯兰党派“复兴运动党”和非宗教政党“召唤党”被认为将赢得议会217个席位当中的多数。

“召唤党”的领导人埃塞卜西表示,星期天的投票结束以后,有迹象显示,他的政党有可能赢得多数选票。

在这次选举中,有多达90个党派和团体参与竞选。这是突尼斯在2011年推翻了本.阿里之后,朝民主方向迈进的一个重要进展。

在随后展开的选举中,“复兴运动党”获得多数选票。这个党派的领导人拉希德.加努希表示,星期天的选举是“历史性的”。

在美国,奥巴马总统高度赞扬了突尼斯的选举,称这次选举是突尼斯朝着历史性的政治转型所迈进的一个重要的里程碑。奥巴马总统表示,突尼斯发生的一切为当地乃至全世界的民众带来鼓舞。

Tunisian Officials Counting Ballots in Parliament Vote

Election officials in Tunisia are counting ballots Monday after a key vote to select the country's first parliament since adopting a new constitution in January.

Preliminary results could be announced Monday with the final tally due by Thursday.

Ahead of the vote, the moderate Islamist Ennahda Party and leading secular party Nidaa Tounes were expected to win the most seats in the 217-member parliament.

Nidaa Tounes leader Beji Caid Essebsi said his party had "positive indications" it could be leading after polls closed Sunday.

Some 90 parties competed in the election, the latest democratic step since Tunisians overthrew autocrat Zine El Abidine Ben Ali in 2011.

Ennahda dominated post-revolution elections that year, and party leader Rachid Ghannouchi described Sunday's vote as "historic."

In the United States, President Barack Obama hailed the election an important milestone in the country's historic political transition.  He said Tunisians continue to "inspire people across their region and around the world."
