The Renaissance Movement, Renaissance Party or Nahda (Arabic: حركة النهضة Ḥarakat an-Nahḍa or حزب النهضة Ḥizb al-Nahḍa, also Hizb Ennahda, Ennahdha; French: Mouvement de la Renaissance Parti de la Renaissance) is a moderate Islamist opposition political party in Tunisia. On 1 March 2011, after the government of Zine El Abidine Ben Ali collapsed in the wake of the 2011 Tunisian revolution, Tunisia's interim government granted the group permission to form a political party. Since then it has become the biggest and best organised party in Tunisia, so far outdistancing its more secular competitors as to create some polarization among the country's political class. On October 24th, 2011, the party claimed victory in the first elections since protests began in the country. - Source: Wikipedia
