              FILE - A Tunisian man walks past a graffiti reading 'for those who yearn to be free', during a general strike in the central Tunisian town of Sidi Bouzid, Tuesday, Aug. 14, 2012.  To outsiders, Tunisia’s legislative elections Saturday, Dec. 17, 2022 look questionable: Many opposition parties are boycotting. A new electoral law makes it harder for women to compete. Foreign media aren’t allowed to talk to candidates. But many voters believe that their country’s decade-old democratic revolution has failed, and welcome their increasingly autocratic president’s political reforms.
