Bloggers from across the region paid tribute to Tunisia for adopting a new constitution, three years after the ousting of dictator Zeine el Abidin Ben Ali.
The country, the first to join the so-called Arab Spring, is on the right path, they say.
Yemeni blogger Noon Arabia congratulates Tunisians:
Majority vote in #Tunisia's National Assembly on the constitution. Congrats Tunisia, a step forward & hopeful example for the Arab Spring

Algerian Megari Larbi follows suit:
Happy for Tunisia to have a new constitution. Giant step towards stability. Good luck brothers.

From Egypt, Mohamed El Dahshan laments the situation in his own country:
WE HAVE A CONSTITUTION! Oh, sorry, I'm just celebrating with my #Tunisia friends. The Egyptian constitution is worth less than toilet-paper.
