Tunisians set for key vote

With elections to constituent assembly scheduled for Sunday, many voters remain undecided.



    Ten months after a popular uprising toppled its president Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, and sparked similar movements across the Arab world, Tunisians are heading to the polls for their first democratic elections on Sunday.

    More than four million people have registered to vote.

    There are more than 100 registered parties but only a handful stand out as strong contenders.

    This has led to confusion about how the polling system work - and many people are undecided on who they will be voting for. However, campaigners say it doesn't really matter as long as people vote.
