Paris, October 24, 2011

France applauds the smooth running of the first free election in Tunisia, where revolution paved the way for the Arab Spring.

Tunisia has thus confirmed her pioneering role.

A hallmark of this historic election was the democratic enthusiasm of the voters, who demonstrated their engagement and their commitment to civic responsibility.

A long-standing partner of Tunisia, France is more than ever at her side during these days of legitimate national pride./.
