Tunisian leader celebrates expected referendum win


The Tunisian president, Kais Saied, has been celebrating his apparent victory in a referendum on a new constitution that gives him almost unlimited powers.


Mr Saied appeared in front of jubilant supporters in the early hours of the morning – after an exit poll indicated that more than 90% of those who had voted had supported the president’s plan.


But turnout was low – less than 30%.


Mr Saied said it would have been higher if voting had taken place over two days.
