Rashid Al-Ghannouchi, the leader of Tunisia's Islamist party Ennahdha, returned home from his 22-year exile on Sunday. In this interview he lays out his view of a more pluralist, left-leaning Islamism and says Ennahdha is committed to democracy. He also notes his own influence on Turkey's AKP. That said, many secularists in Tunisia are apprehensive about a rise in Islamist sentiment in the country.
