Tunisia is set to hold its presidential election on October 6, 2024, according to a statement from President Kais Saied’s office. The election comes amidst political turmoil and economic hardship, with Saied’s consolidation of power leading to widespread criticism.

Saied, who took office in 2019, has governed through decrees since 2021, imposing a presidential system and limiting parliamentary powers. The move has resulted in the imprisonment of critics, a crackdown on the media, and a stagnant economy with high unemployment and poverty rates.
