Tunisia: Voting under way in presidential runoff election

Voting is under way in Tunisia’s runoff presidential election between media magnate Nabil Karoui and conservative lawyer Kais Saied.
The two self-styled “outsider” candidates delivered a shock to the Tunisian political establishment when they came in the top two of 26 candidates during the first round of the election held on September 15.
Saied garnered 18.4 percent of votes while Karoui, who was released from prison just days ago, came second with 15.6 percent in the first round.
In the last hours of the campaign on Friday afternoon, the main avenue in Tunis was the site of two contrasting scenes.
