Disclaimer: Parliamentary Elections were held on Oct 26th, 2014 and the Presidential election is scheduled on November 23rd 2014 - This submission to the Open Data Index was made on November 20th, 2014

Preliminary results from the Oct 2014 election are available here:

Data on the 2011 elections is available from the Instance supérieure independante pour les élections (in Arabic). This data, not available in machine readable formats, was scrapped and used to build: (Mourakiboun, Development Seed, Democracy International). However, the links from Tunisia Election Data and from the 2013 Global Open Data Index to 2011 election data are now dead.

Reviewer: When surveyed after the parliamentary elections and after the first round of the presidential (on Nov 26), the ISIE website provided preliminary results from the presidential elections and additional information and data on the parliamentary elections. See:

I would thus consider information to be released on a timely basis -- even if the "data" is print-out, manually signed and then re-scanned PDF.

Reviewer comments

The submission is correct.
