Tunisians stand outside the building that houses the new anti-corruption commission.

Tunisia's interim government recently set up a date for national elections. On July 24, Tunisians will vote on who should draft the country's new constitution. This follows weeks of demonstrations calling for a rapid transition to democracy.

Megan Williams brings us the story from the capital, Tunis.
