Last Wednesday, Beji Caid Essebsi officially took office as the new Tunisian President. The former Prime Minister of Tunisia was elected as President in the first democratic elections in the country since the Jasmine Revolution.

The revolution was triggered by the poor social and economic climate in Tunisia, as well as by a lack of democratic rights and freedoms. Following the departure of Ben Ali in 2011, the country was ruled by an interim government.
