Almost four million Tunisians will head to the polls on Sunday to elect a Constituent Assembly that will eventually draft the country's constitution.

This comes nine months after President Ben Ali was ousted and Tunisia opened the floodgates of pro-democracy protests across the Arab world.

Over 11,000 candidates are vying for 217 seats.

After the Assembly is elected, parliamentary and presidential elections are expected to take place in the months ahead.
