Ennahda tunisia women

A protestor holding a placard reading in French 'Yes to Islam - No to corruption' take part with about 100 Tunisians in a protest on October 25, 2011 outside the headquarters of the independent electoral body against 'fraud' they claimed had marred the country's first-ever democratic vote. The protesters called for a probe into the finances of some parties, including Ennahda, which is widely suspected of being propped up by Gulf countries despite a ban on foreign funding for parties contesting the election.
