Tunisia President Saied celebrates expected referendum win – BBC News

Tunisia’s President Kais Saied has been celebrating his apparent victory in a referendum on a new constitution that gives him almost unlimited powers.

An exit poll indicated more than 90% of those who had voted had supported the president’s plan, but turnout was only 27.5%, with main opposition parties boycotting the poll.

President Saied promised that Tunisia would now enter a new phase, after what he describes as a decade of political deadlock, but his opponents will cite the low turnout as denying legitimacy to what they see as a worrying move back towards autocracy.
