How Recent Developments in Tunisia Have Panned Out
Tunisia, like many other countries in North Africa, has dealt with a large amount of revolts from its inhabitants. Tunisia has experienced a successful change in the way how it is run.
Tunisia had been run by Zine el Abidine Ben Ali since 1987. He took control in a successful coup.
However, the control of Tunisia under Ben Ali was unsuccessful. This was despite Ben Ali being reelected with nearly ninety percent of the vote in 2009. Increasing unemployment rates that are in the double digits had crippled much of the economy in Tunisia. Also, there had been declines in the growth of the economy in the country. Inflation was also a substantial concern in Tunisia.
These problems caused the people of Tunisia to revolt against Ben Ali. These protests began in late 2010. A series of riots even occurred in Tunisia as a result of these protests.
Ben Ali fled the country and its government in January 2011. This forced the country?s existing government to create a new government that is made with the intention of uniting the people and helping to correct problems in the country. Fouad M?Bazaa is the current president of Tunisia. It is unclear as to how long M?Bazaa will be running the country for.
These protests and the success that the people of Tunisia had over them have helped to influence many other protests in North Africa. The most notable of these are the successful protests in Egypt and the ongoing efforts in Libya.
It is not clear as to how these developments in Tunisia are going to impact the economy of the country or employment rates. It may take months or even years to determine how well the disposal of Ben Ali from power will impact the country with regards to how it operates.
