Исламисты и политический процесс в Тунисской Республике после "Арабской весны"
The paper examines the evolution of the political process in the countries of North Africa after the events of so-called "Arab Spring". This article shows how a sharp introduction of democratic processes in the Arab world leads to the fact that the Islamists come to power by winning the elections. An example of this are the elections to the Constituent Assembly of Tunisia in 2011, as well as voting in the parliamentary and presidential elections in Egypt in 2011-2012. The reasons on which the parties advocating Islam and using populist slogans can triumph in the period of large-scale political change are being analyzed. In addition, the claim that today it is premature to talk about the success of the Islamists in the Maghreb, at least until the next election cycle is put forward.
