It has been six months since we moved to live in Tunisia. And the time has been so busy and full of events, that only now I have some time to start a series of posts with my observations and impressions about our new home: Tunisia.
We arrived here shortly after “jasmin revolution” and had an excellent chance to witness all the good times and not so good ones that Tunisia and Tunisians had to go through to arrive to this week.
In just three days people will go to elect their representatives for “la Constituante” – democratic political institution (similar to parliament) that will be responsible for drafting and adoption of the new constitution. It is a very important task for those who will be trusted by their poeple. And all I can wish to them and to the voters – make your decisions based on true analysis and with responsability, serve your country proudly!
This will be a very important Sunday and most likely the one that you will tell your children and grandchildren about. Comming from a “post revolution” (Latvia gained independence in 1991) myself I can observe many similarities with what Tunisia is facing this year, but one thing I can tell for sure – those who will go to vote on 23 of October will be making history and historical decision for themselves, their families and loved ones and for Tunisia.
Best of luck!
