"Tunisia's foreign minister said Tuesday his government is ready for Oct. 23 elections, the first since a rebellion overthrew the country's longtime dictator sparking an unprecedented wave of pro-democracy uprisings across the Arab world. Mouldi Kefi expressed hope in an Associated Press interview that Tunisians anxious for democracy would put aside their 'egocentric' demands, protests and strikes and focus on the best interests of the country."
