TUNIS - Tunisia's leading secular party Nidaa Tounes won 85 seats in the new 217-member parliament after Sunday's election, while Islamist party Ennahda secured 69 seats, according to results released by electoral authorities on Thursday.

Tunisians voted on Sunday in a parliamentary election that was one of the last steps in the North African country's transition to democracy after the 2011 uprising against Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali.
