On October 6, 2019, Tunisians will go to the polls to elect a new Assembly of the Representatives of the People. Tunisians residing abroad will vote on October 4, 5 and 6.

These elections will replace the assembly elected in 2014, whose five-year mandate will expire at the beginning of December 2019. They are taking place less than a month after the first round of the early presidential election. The numbers of voters registered for both of the 2019 elections has increased considerably since the 2018 municipal elections and 2014 national elections.
