Politics and government of
Tunisia

The politics of Tunisia function within a framework of a republic organized under a constitution, with a president serving as chief of state, prime minister as head of government, a bicameral legislature and a court system influenced by French civil law. While Tunisia is a multi-party system, the secular Constitutional Democratic Rally (RCD) led by President Zine el Abidine Ben Ali has enjoyed overwhelming support in national elections since Tunisia won independence from the French colonial empire in 1956.

Tunisia is a member of the Arab League, the African Union and the Organisation of the Islamic Conference. It maintains close relations with France and the European Union, with which it entered an Association Agreement in 1995.[1] Tunisia’s favorable relations with the European Union was earned following years of successful economic cooperation in the private sector and infrastructure modernization.[2]
