KNOW NOW: Oussama Romdhani on the Tunisian Elections

September 30, 2019

WACA's KNOW NOW conference call on Thursday, September 19, at 3:00-3:30 pm ET, featured Oussama Romdhani, Editor in Chief of The Arab Weekly and former Tunisian Communications Minister.

On Sunday, September 15, Tunisians will go to the polls to elect their next president - a vote that will have regional and international implications. Considering the unsettled situations in Libya and Algeria, the success or failure of Tunisia's third democratic contest since the 2011 uprising could have a bearing on regional stability. Join WACA for a conversation with Oussama Romdhani and WAC Dallas/Fort Worth President & CEO Jim Falk about why the Tunisian elections matter and how the new Tunisian president can ensure the future stability and economic recovery of Tunisia.
