Zine El Abidine Ben Ali's Biography

Zine El Abidine Ben Ali (Arabic: زين العابدين بن علي‎, Zīn al-‘Ābidīn bin ‘Alī; born 3 September 1936) is a Tunisian political figure who was the second President of Tunisia from 1987 to 2011. Ben Ali was appointed Prime Minister in October 1987, and he assumed the Presidency on 7 November 1987 in a bloodless coup d'état that ousted President Habib Bourguiba, who was declared incompetent. Ben Ali was subsequently reelected with enormous majorities, each time exceeding 90% of the vote; the final reelection was on 25 October 2009.
