This article lists political parties in Tunisia. Tunisia was a dominant-party state of the Constitutional Democratic Rally ("RCD" from its French language initials) before the Tunisian revolution. In the aftermath of the revolution the RCD was dissolved by the new state authorities and over 70 new political parties formed.[1] The country is now a multiparty state. Although there are two numerically major parties, no single party has a realistic chance of governing alone.[further explanation needed][citation needed]

The parties[edit]

The following opposition parties exist de jure and/or de facto. On January 20, 2011 the cabinet of the interim government recognized all previously banned parties, with the exception of Hizb ut-Tahrir and a few other parties.[2]
