TUNIS, October 28 (Itar-Tass) —— Moderate Islamist Ennahda party won the election in Tunisia by getting over 40 percent of votes in the Sunday polls held in the wake of the Arab spring uprising that toppled President Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali.
Election officials said on Friday Ennahda, which was banned under Ben Ali, won 41.47 percent of votes and will occupy 90 out of 217 seats in parliament which has to draft a new constitution, form an interim government, and prepare the country for a general election.
Islamist leader Rachid Ghannouchi said the rights of all will be protected in Tunisia.
"We will continue this revolution to realise its aims of a Tunisia that is free, independent, developing and prosperous in which the rights of God, the Prophet, women, men, the religious and the non-religious are assured because Tunisia is for everyone," Ghannouchi told a crowd of supporters.
However the announced results triggered riots in the provincial town of Sidi Bouzid, the cradle of the January 14 revolution, as hundreds of supporters of the Popular List party led by businessman Hachmi Hamdi, a native of the town, threw stones at the Ennahda offices.
The votes in favor of the party were discounted for irregularities in six districts and it occupied the fourth place in the election which was a major surprise for observers.
Police reportedly used tear gas to disperse protesters in Sidi Bouzid.
