Law Professor Kais Saied won the first round as the ultimate outsider, with 18.4% of the vote ahead of media magnate Nabil Karoui, still in detention, who came second with 15.6% of the ballots cast. The September 15 vote was a triumph for populists, whose seven candidates won about 55% of the vote. None of the modernist candidates won much more than 10% of the vote in a race that repudiated all centrist parties if not the entire political establishment. A runoff is to be held by October 13 and legislative elections are to take place October 6 but the first round of the presidential race has shown that nothing will probably be the same in Tunisian politics.
