    Welcome to EL&U. Usually, "every" implies one, as in "everyone". Also, the antecedent of your clause is singular, so your first sentence sounds better. – Cascabel Jan 4 '18 at 14:43

Just as each or every precedes a singular noun — you can't say "every words" — the verb agrees with the noun in the singular.

Every male and female voter who holds...

I would say who holds Tunisian citizenship rather than the Tunisian nationality.
