Voting just closed about an hour ago.

Exit polls show Saied at 72.53% and Karoui with 27.47%, an incredible, mammoth blowout [Link] Saied appears to have won EVERY SINGLE constituency.

Tunisia already calls it for Saied, before the votes have even been counted!

A victory of Putinesque proportions.

Quote from Parliament victor and Saied ally, Ennahdha: "Ennahdha congratulates all Tunisians on the victory of Mr. Kais Saied (according to initial results) and calls on all its supporters to join the celebrations on Bourghuiba Avenue tonight."

Sorry, just can't get enough of this historic moment.

A good man wins in Tunisia today. A constitutional scholar and jurist who's (refreshingly) opposed to the concept of political parties, snake-in-the-grass wheelin' and dealin' and the mobocracy. A thoughtful, selfless pragmatist respectful to the opposition and obviously loving to his people and his country. A good successor to the Essebsi lore.

A bright future for Tunisia awaits. Headlines in the world should read: Proud father of the Arab Spring sees a Summer harvest.
