Middle East correspondent for the French daily, Le Figaro, Delphine Minoui, discusses the changes in Tunisia since the January revolution and the political dynamics of the upcoming election.
I am the wife of Ali Naouai, who was your lone Tunisian caller today. I am German-American and have spent many summers in Tunisia. I have learned a great deal from my Tunisian friends and family and I love it there. My wish is that those who have worked so hard for so little recompense will finally have equal opportunities to start businesses. The Tunisians have a strong entrepreneurial bent, but the chance to express it has been reserved for the privileged, connected few. I hope that the government can now begin to work with the people to develop, once again, a vibrant economy of merchants and small industry, instead of standing in their way as they did under Ben Ali. I'm so proud and inspired. This little country has reminded us all of what democracy entails and we must all support them in their efforts to establish a new government.
