The Green party of Tunisia, Tunisie Verte, ran candidates in the elections that took place in October following the democratic revolution. The party was formed in 2004 but struggled with harassment and oppression for many years. It was finally able to be registered in early 2011 in time for the elections. The party was not successful in winning a seat in the national parliament but intends to run candidates in the local government elections that will take place in the first half of 2012. Here is a quirky election advertisement from their team that ran for the expat seats to represent Tunisians living in France.
