More than 90% of registered voters cast ballots in Tunisia's first national elections since independence, officials said.
"The polling stations registered a turnout rate of more than 90%," said Boubaker Bethabet, secretary-general of the Independent High Authority for the Election.
Workers have begun manually counting the votes, with final results expected Tuesday afternoon.
The manual-counting method "requires time," Bethabet told the official Tunisia News Agency. "It is carried out twice by two distinct teams. The obtained results are then compared to ensure greater accuracy."
