Tunis opposition rally draws thousands
2013-01-29
[MAGHAREBIA] Tunisian opposition party Nidaa Tounes marked its first anniversary on Sunday (January 27th) with a large rally, Tunisia Live reported.

"We are worried about the future," party founder and former interim Prime Minister Beji Caid Essebsi told a crowd of thousands gathered in Tunis.

"The elections took us halfway through the democratic transition. But democracy is not just the elections," he said. "It's about peaceful transfer of power and it's about keeping the political scene balanced."

Rally participants condemned the political violence in the country, the religious tensions and the recent destruction of Sufi mausoleums.
