In a Muslim-majority country, a Jewish sewing machine repairer Simon Slama is aiming for victory as he stands for a Muslim party. He says all must come together to build the Tunisia of tomorrow.
"The multitude is stronger than the king" is a saying in Tunisia and the country has proved that during its revolution seven years ago. Now more than 57,000 candidates are running for municipal office.
One of them is a Jewish sewing machine repairer named Simon Slama. He has been nominated as a candidate for the Ennahda party in the city of Monastir.
It might seem unusual for a country with a tiny Jewish minority but not to Slama.
