Political participation has become increasingly important in Tunisia following the Arab uprisings of 2011. Tunisia has taken significant steps toward democracy and done so in a relatively peaceful manner, avoiding the violent chaos and authoritarian resurrection seen in other Arab Spring countries. In October 2011, a Constituent Assembly election was held, and the new Tunisian constitution was passed in January 2014. In 2014, the parliamentary election was held in October, and two rounds of presidential elections were held in November and December, marking the completion of a four-year transitional period.
