Nobel Peace Prize For Tunisian Civil Society Coalition

London, October 9: Tunisia's National Dialogue Quartet won the Nobel Peace Prize on Friday for its contribution to building a pluralistic  democracy after the Jasmine Revolution in 2011, the Nobel Committee said.

The Nobel Peace Prize, worth eight million Swedish crowns (R12,9-million), will be presented in Oslo on December 10.

Kaci Kullmann Five, the newly appointed chairman of the Norwegian Nobel committee, said the quartet had formed an alternative peaceful political process in 2013 when the country was on the brink of civil war and subsequently guaranteed fundamental rights for the entire population, reported the Guardian newspaper in Britain.
