TUNIS (Reuters) - Tunisia’s moderate Islamist Ennahda came first in Sunday’s parliamentary election, one of its spokesman said in a news briefing broadcast online, citing what he called preliminary results.

The head of a rival party, Heart of Tunisia, earlier on Sunday said it had won the election.
