Abstract: At its tenth national congress, Ennahda Movement Party declared that it will separate politics from preaching and transform itself into a national democratic party. This decision was perceived as an indication of the downfall of Islamism. However, tracing the ideological and organizational evolution of the Tunisian Islamist movement shows that it is highly dynamic and adaptable. Therefore, the latest developments should be perceived as a new metamorphosis of Islamism and an organizational remodeling of its movement in response to the opportunities and challenges it has faced since the Arab Spring.

Key words: Islamism, Ennahda Movement Party, Political Islam, Muslim Brotherhood.
