The Arab Spring began in Tunisia in December 2010 and the country is still leading the way in Arab transitions to democratic government. In October 2011, Tunisia held its first genuinely free and fair elections since independence in 1956 and a coalition government has since been formed which includes both Islamists and secularists, and which is preparing a new constitution that will in turn set the rules for presidential and national assembly elections within a year.
