TUNIS - Tunisia's moderate Islamist Ennahda party, likely to be declared winner of an election held at the weekend, is prepared to form an alliance with two secularist parties, a senior Ennahda official told Reuters on Monday.

"We in Ennahda are prepared to make an alliance with Moncef Marzouki's Congress for the Republic and (Mustafa) Ben Jaafar's Ettakatol, given they are not far from us in their views and also that these two parties had a large share of the vote," said Ali Larayd, a member of Ennahda's executive committee.
