The leader of the Congress for the Republic Party (PCR) Moncef Marzouki (L), a doctor and former president of the Tunisian human-rights league, gestures after voting on October 23, 2011 in Sousse in Tunisia's first-ever democratic election. Some 7.2 million people are eligible to vote for a new constituent assembly in 12 hours of polling that started at 07.00 am (0600 GMT). The assembly will decide what system of government the country will have and how to guarantee basic liberties, including women's rights.
