Background: Rivalry between French and Italian interests in Tunisia culminated in a French invasion in 1881 and the creation of a protectorate. Agitation for independence in the decades following World War I was finally successful in getting the French to recognize Tunisia as an independent state in 1956. The country's first president , Habib BOURGUIBA , established a strict one-party state. He dominated the country for 31 years , repressing Islamic fundamentalism and establishing rights for women unmatched by any other Arab nation. In November 1987 , BOURGUIBA was removed from office and replaced by Zine el Abidine BEN ALI in a bloodless coup. BEN ALI is currently serving his fourth consecutive five-year term as president; the next elections are scheduled for October 2009. Tunisia has long taken a moderate , non-aligned stance in its foreign relations. Domestically , it has sought to defuse rising pressure for a more open political society.
