Mass protests pushed Tunisia’s long-time leader Zine El Abidine Ben Ali from power 10 years ago.

Some are worried the country could return to authoritarianism.

Thousands rallied in the capital Tunis for a second time since President Kais Saied seized executive power in July.

He has since consolidated his power further, deciding to rule by decree.

So could Tunisia return to absolute, one-man rule?
