World - Tunisia artists, media fear for freedoms after election


Tunisian rappers, comedians and journalists, fearful that next week`s presidential election could cement a return to power by partisans of the former dictatorship, are bracing themselves to defend the freedoms won since it was ousted in 2011.

A flattering piece on Ben Ali could always be found on the front page, and another at the top of the lineup on the television news. Rappers, a particular bane of the old regime, are leading the way in warning against what they fear could be the effective return to power of Ben Ali`s RCD party in the shape of Nidaa Tounes, which already won parliamentary elections in October.

An exiled son-in-law of deposed Tunisian president Zine El Abidine Ben Ali returned to the capital Tuesday to challenge a jail sentence for having a gun, his lawyer told AFP.
