A Tunisian polling firm reportedly put outsider and independent Tunisian presidential candidate Kais Saied in the lead on Sunday, after the fist round of voting in the country's presidential election.

Footage filmed on Sunday shows Saied embracing his supporters in the Tunisian capital of Tunis.

Official preliminary results are expected to be published on Tuesday, after which the top two candidates will move forward to a second round of voting expected by October 13.

Sunday's Presidential elections are the second to take place since the Jasmine revolution in 2010-2011 which saw president Zine El Abidine Ben Ali removed from office.
