Exiled Tunisian opposition leader  Rachid Ghannouchi comes home
Here’s how quickly things in Tunisia have changed: This guy, Rachid Ghannouchi, a leader in the country’s Islamist Ennahda movement, has returned to the country he was exiled from 22 years ago. His party, which did well in the 1989 elections, was banned by Zine al-Abdine Ben Ali, who was likely nervous about the party’s popularity. While the party plans to take part in the upcoming parliamentary (but not presidential) elections, Ghannouchi is done with public office, saying that there are younger generations that would do a better job. But he’s back in the country which pushed him aside two decades ago – an even bigger victory. source
