SCRIPT
Tunisian media mogul Nabil Karoui, who is running for presidency, was filmed casting his ballot at a polling station during the second round of the presidential election in Tunis on Sunday.
Opinion polls have been banned but the outcome is likely to be similar to that of September's presidential election, which saw newcomers Kais Saied and Nabil Karoui respectively claim 18.4 and 15.6 percent of the votes.
Saied is a retired law professor running on an anti-corruption platform, while Karoui is a businessman and private TV channel owner who is under investigation for money laundering and was in pre-trial detention from August 23 until October 9.
Sunday's vote is the second of its kind since the 2014 adoption of the Tunisian constitution following the overthrow of former president Zine El Abidine Ben Ali in 2011. Ben Ali died in Saudi Arabia in September.
