Results Are Mixed in Tunisia's First Free Election

Hosted by

The "Arab Spring" began in Tunisia, with the ouster of one-party rule.  Yesterday's presidential run-off election was seen as the final step in the transition to democracy. Today it was announced that the winner is a former member of the old regime with 55% of the vote. Robin Wright is in Tunis. The veteran reporter on the Middle East is joint fellow at the US Institute of Peace and the Woodrow Wilson Center and author of Rock the Casbah: Rage and Rebellion across the Islamic World.
