were held in Tunisia
on 4 November 1979,
with a presidential election not required after Habib Bourguiba
had been made President-for-life
in 1975. At the time the country was a one-party state
with the Socialist Destourian Party
(PSD) as the sole legal party. Unlike previous elections, in which the PSD put forward a single list of candidates in each constituency, for this election there were multiple PSD candidates to choose from. Voter turnout was 80.55%.
