The New York Times has been interesting coverage of the elections in Tunisia. As the first post “Arab-spring” election in the region, the contest strikes many as a portentous one that will begin to answer the question of what the arrival of democracy will mean in the country and the broader region. Interestingly, anxiety about the role of money in politics — which also drives the Occupy protests in the United States — has become one of the major issues in the campaign.
