Nabil Baffoun, the head of the country's election authority, said the presidential election will be held on Nov. 10, with a possible second round of voting two weeks later. It's not yet known whether 92-year-old President Beji Caid Essebsi plans to run again.
Baffoun says the vote to elect legislators is set for Oct. 6 and the voter participation teams plan to hit the road in April.
Baffoun lamented past low voter turnout, especially among young adults. Demonstrations in Tunisia turned into a revolution that caused the president to flee and triggered the pro-democracy "Arab Spring" in North Africa and the Middle East eight years ago.
