Abstract

This research describes Rachid Ghannouchi's role in democratization in Tunisia after the Ben Ali regime, including in bridging the Islamists and secularists in Tunisia. This discussion is interesting because Tunisia is a secular country but when the 2011 election in Tunisia was won by the Islamic party of Al-Nahdah leading by Rachid Ghannouchi. In addition, the research on the role of Rachid Ghannouchi in democratization in Tunisia after the Ben Ali regime in detail is still limited. This study uses leadership theory. Leadership theory focuses on concepts based on experience which means that leadership can be found in a person from many practices or exercises. The concept of leadership is a fundamental component in analyzing processes and dynamics within the organization. This research provides an illustration of how Rachid Ghannouchi's role and efforts in democratization in Tunisia after the Arab Spring especially after the fall of the Ben Ali regime include the Cross-Party Partnership & Coalition-Building. This study uses qualitative research and descriptive analysis methods.
