"A Tunisian Islamist party banned for more than 20 years was legalized today, while the country’s most prominent opposition figure quit the unity government amid renewed uncertainty about where Tunisia is headed. The Ennahdha party — branded an Islamic terrorist group by Tunisia’s deposed leader but considered moderate by scholars — has rebounded onto the political scene since a popular uprising forced out autocratic President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali in January."
