a new decree on the suspension of Parliament

In Tunisia, after his prime minister on Sunday, July 25, President Kaïs Saïed appointed a person in charge of the Interior Ministry. At the same time, another decree is being commented on to a large extent this Friday morning, in the case of the National Assembly, whose work has been frozen since last Sunday.

“The deadline can be extended by presidential decree” is this little sentence in the middle of a new decree on the National Assembly which will be debated on Friday morning, 30 July in Tunis. The Ennahdha party, unlike the president, reacted quickly: one month, “this should be the maximum limit for interrupting the institutions and the constitution”.

The training requires discussions with political parties to present a new prime minister to parliament before the end of the month. “If there is no agreement on the return of Parliament, the formation of the government and its presentation to Parliament, the Tunisian street will undoubtedly mobilize,” Ennahdha threatened.

In all cases, Tunisia’s confidence still seems to have been acquired by the president. They expect a real change in the way politics is conducted. A user on Tweeter emphasizes that “Kaïs Saïed embodies the anti-system, and he was chosen as such”.

For political analyst Slaheddine Jourchi, there is no doubt: the deadline for the 30-day suspension of parliament will be exceeded. He emphasizes that the president – professor of constitutional law – “does not believe in the parliamentary system or in political parties”. For him, just like other observers, the president wants to return to a presidential system.
