Hundreds rally in Tunisia in support of Prez Saied - 1 min read

Tunis: Hundreds of Tunisians held on a massive demonstration in the capital city to show their support for the country’s President Kais Saied and calls for more changes in the political system.

Demonstrators took to the streets on Sunday, waving national flags and chanting slogans such as “the people want to a revision of the constitution” and “the people want to dissolve Parliament”, reports Xinhua news agency

Several political parties, including Popular Movement, Alliance for Tunisia and the Popular Current, participated in this demonstration to support the president.

Tunisia has been mired in a social and economic crisis that has been worsened by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

On July 25, Saied announced that he had removed Hichem Mechichi from the post of Prime Minister and suspended all activities of the Tunisian parliament.

Saied’s decision faced criticism from opposition parties.

Tunisia’s Islamist party Ennahdha (Renaissance), the first majority party in Parliament, rejected the presidential decree to continue suspending the parliament, citing that it “constitutes a real suspension” of the 2014 Constitution.
