Tunisians lined up to vote since the 2011 revolution.

Tunisians lined up to vote for their first five-year parliament since they overthrew their dictator in the 2011 revolution that kicked off the Arab Spring.

There has been discontent over the slow pace of change and the continued economic problems following the revolution that was partly carried out over the lack of jobs.

The country has been rocked by turmoil in the last three and a half years, including political assassinations, labor unrest, high inflation and attacks from Islamist extremists.

Still, Tunisia's democratic transition has remained on track, unlike in other countries that experienced Arab Spring uprisings.
