ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Tunisia's National Dialogue Quartet won the Nobel Peace Prize on Friday (October 9) for its contribution to building democracy after the Jasmine Revolution in 2011, the Nobel Committee said. The quartet is made up of the Tunisian General Labour Union (UGTT), the Tunisian Confederation of Industry, Trade and Handicrafts (UTICA), the Tunisian Human Rights League (LTDH), and the Tunisian Order of Lawyers. The quartet "established an alternative, peaceful, political process at a time when the country was on the brink of civil war," and enabled the country to form a system of government that ensured fundamental rights for the entire population, "irrespective of gender , political conviction or religious belief," Kaci Kullmann Five, the Chairman of the Norwegian Nobel Committee said. The Nobel Peace Prize, worth eight million Swedish crowns ($972,000), will be presented in Oslo on Dec. 10.
