Tunisian crisis escalates as President dissolves Parliament

Tunisian President Kais Saied declared last week the dismissal of parliament, citing the constitution’s 72ndchapter and labeling the plenary session as a “failed coup attempt.”

“If they want to divide the country and sow strife, the stars of the sky are closer to them than that,” Qais Saeed stated in reaction to the halted parliament session.

“What they are doing today is an open conspiracy against state security,” he added
He explained that the Public Prosecution Office would do its part, noting that he had spoken with the Minister of Justice.

“We have a responsibility to maintain Tunisia’s security, unity, and continuity,” he said.

“We will not allow the abusers to continue their aggression against the people’s institutions and capabilities, and we will not let them continue their outwardly exposed labor,” he explained.

A virtual session of Parliament was convened to end the exceptional measures proclaimed by the President of the Republic months ago.

The Tunisian parliament has convened for the first time since Said suspended its work last summer.

Furthermore, the Somoud political coalition said in a statement that what Ghannouchi and his guardians received from the frozen parliament were attempts to drag the country into a dangerous path that threatens the safety of Tunisians.
