Tunisian Parliamentary Elections – Today, Sunday, January 29, 2023, the stage of the second round of elections in Tunisia ended with a low rate of turnout.
After the results of the first round were committed on December 17, 2022, to the continuation of the elections in some districts. That witnessed a great convergence in the voting rates for the candidates for membership in the Tunisian parliament.
Independent High Authority for Elections (ISIE) announced tonight, the Preliminary turnout rates for the second round of Tunisian Parliamentary Elections. And after the closure of all polling stations in the country, a total of 887 638 voters from 7 853 447 registered people.
Reasons for low turnout rate in the Parliamentary Elections:
The only analysis of the weakness of citizens going to cast their votes in the Tunisian elections. It is the lack of confidence in the candidates in the form of people rather than lists.
Something that the Tunisians are not used to because they do not have confidence in people themselves.The turnout rate for young people also witnessed a significant decline, by 4.17% between the ages of 18 and 25, and 24.09% between the ages of 25 and 45. While the turnout was high among those over 46 years old, with a rate of more than 60%.
These parliamentary elections did not witness a significant presence of the youth group. Neither from the point of view of the voters nor even from the parliament, except for one of the constituencies.
Therefore, this is a policy that excludes the voice of youth in Tunisia and discourages them to enter political life.
