TUNIS — Walking along the historic Habib Bourguiba Avenue, named for Tunisia’s first president after independence, it’s hard to tell there’s even a political campaign going on. No faces of candidates stare down at passersby from campaign posters. No one hands out flyers or hangs party flags. After accusations that the 2011 elections gave parties with more money an unfair advantage, a new electoral law means that campaign budgets are prohibitively small and parties can only hang posters in designated areas.
