In only a few days, Tunisians will go to the polls in the first free and fair election in the country's history.

The new constitutional assembly, resulting from these elections, will have the power to change the future direction of the country.

As Tunisia moves from dictatorship to democracy, its people will decide whether they want an Islamic or more secular path.
