Tunisia: elections proof that dream of Arab spring can come true, says Mogherini

According to Foreign Minister Federica Mogherini, yesterday’s elections are proof once again that Tunisia remains an example for all the countries of the southern Mediterranean shores that have launched a new season of democracy. “The elections show the solidity of Tunisians’ will to pursue the path of democracy undertaken in December 2010 with the sacrifice of Mohamed Bouaziz”, she said.

“Tunisia has shown over recent years that despite profound friction the dream of the Arab spring can come true, that it is possible through dialogue and political encounter to build stable and democratic institutions”, Mogherini continued. “This compels Italy and the entire international community to foster and support peaceful transitions in which citizens’ hopes for peace, prosperity and rights have a voice”, she said, adding that “yesterday’s vote is a great tribute to the memory of Mohamed Bouaziz”.
