Tunisia's veteran opposition figure Moncef Marzouki, who was sworn in as the nation's president on December 13, 2011,  gestures before addressing the constituent assembly in Tunis following his swearing in. The north African country's new president opposed long-serving strongman Zine el Abidine Ben Ali throughout his political career and was forced to live in exile in France for a decade.  The 66-year-old only returned home after Ben Ali was toppled in January by an unprecedented popular uprising.  AFP PHOTO / FETHI BELAID (Photo credit should read FETHI BELAID/AFP/Getty Images)
