This year's Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded to Tunisia's National Dialogue Quartet for its "decisive contribution to the building of a pluralistic democracy in Tunisia in the wake of the 'Jasmine Revolution' of 2011," it was announced in Oslo on Friday. The Tunisian National Dialogue Quartet was critical in forming a peaceful coalition in a nation on the brink of civil war amid the chaos that ensued during the so-called 'Arab Spring' of 2011, the Norwegian Nobel Committee says. Kaci Kullmann Five, the newly appointed chairperson of the Norwegian Nobel Committee made the announcement amid great anticipation, since few hints had preceded the announcement. There were 273 nominees, with 205 people and 68 organisations to choose from. Reports suggested German Chancellor Angela Merkel could have received hte award for her "humane" response to the European refugee and migrant crisis. Other potentials were Pope Francis, Saudi Arabian activist Raif Badawi and whistleblower Edward Snowden.
