Today, Monday, the Tunisian presidency confirmed that the decisions taken in the country were made after consulting the Prime Minister and the Speaker of Parliament, and pursuant to Article 80 of the Constitution.The Tunisian presidency called on the people to pay attention and not to slip behind the advocates of chaos, noting the issuance in the coming hours of an order regulating the exceptional measures necessitated by the circumstances and which will remove the causes of their demise.
The Tunisian presidency indicated that President Kais Saied’s decisions are aimed at preserving the nation’s integrity, the country’s security and independence, and ensuring the normal functioning of the state’s wheels.
Today, Monday, the Tunisian presidency announced in a statement that Tunisian President Kais Saied suspended the work of Parliament for a period of 30 days.
On Sunday, Tunisian President Kais Saied announced the freezing of all powers of the House of Representatives, headed by the head of the Brotherhood’s Ennahda Movement, Rashid Ghannouchi.
The Tunisian president also decided, according to a statement published by the Tunisian presidency on its official page on the “Facebook” website, to lift the immunity of all members of the House of Representatives and dismiss Prime Minister Hisham Al-Mashishi.
The Tunisian presidency statement said: “President Kais Saied decided to take over the executive authority with the help of a government headed by the Prime Minister appointed by the President of the Republic.”
Tunisia is witnessing an escalating resurgence of protests in most governorates, and increasing calls for the dissolution of Parliament and the overthrow of the ruling system, after the deterioration of the economic, social and health conditions, which led to the end of a state of calm that extended in Tunisia for months.
During the current protests, the headquarters of the Islamic Ennahda movement, which has ruled Tunisia for more than 10 years, was burned.
Hundreds of demonstrators flocked to Parliament Square in Bardo, demanding its dissolution, while local media reported that demonstrators attacked the headquarters of the Brotherhood’s Renaissance Movement in a number of cities.
Demonstrators raised slogans in the streets calling for the overthrow of the government headed by Hisham al-Mashishi and against the Ennahda movement and its head, Rached Ghannouchi.
These demonstrations come in response to a previous call by activists, amid a state of anger due to the economic conditions and the crisis of the outbreak of the Corona epidemic.
Despite the outbreak of the Corona virus and the strict security measures, many Tunisians responded to the calls to demonstrate, as many saw in this a possibility to bring about real change in Tunisia.
In addition to the economic and health crisis that Tunisia is experiencing, the country is going through a political crisis between the two parties, the President of the Republic, who sees that the government’s options are failed and that it is subject to pressure from the lobbies.
