Tunisia celebrated Friday the adoption of a new constitution three years after the revolution, a landmark in getting its troubled transition back on track and hailed as a model by foreign leaders.The constitution was forged during two years of acrimonious debate, amid deep divisions and mistrust between the Islamist party Ennahda then in power and the largely secular opposition, aggravated by sporadic jihadist violence rocking the country.The political assassination, the first of two last year, triggered massive anti-government protests and a crisis from which Tunisia has only now started to emerge, with the adoption of a consensus constitution and the Ennahda-led government's replacement by a technocrat administration.Imed Daimi, the head of President Moncef Marzouki's political party, called on the country's allies to help the Tunisian economy.
