I join President Obama in congratulating the people of Tunisia on their first ever democratic elections. Yesterday’s vote, which elected a new Constituent Assembly, is a historic milestone on Tunisia’s path from autocratic dictatorship to a government that respects the will of the people. We encourage the Constituent Assembly to operate in a transparent and inclusive manner as they undertake this new democratic responsibility and fulfill the Tunisian people’s aspirations for accountability, wider economic opportunity and respect for universal human rights.

As Tunisia’s brave citizens chart a new democratic future, they continue to set an example for the region and the world. The United States remains committed to working with the government and people of Tunisia as they pursue a more peaceful, prosperous and democratic future.
