Tunisian party leaders announced the formation of a new coalition and stressed that they would not participate in this country’s parliamentary elections.
Tunisia on July 25, 2022, was the scene of a new constitutional referendum. The holding of this referendum was one of the exceptional actions of Tunisia’s president, Qais Said, which took place on July 25 last year after the dismissal of the government and the appointment of another government and the dissolution of the Judicial Council and Parliament. However, some Tunisian parties, including the Islamist party “Al-Nahda,” assessed the results of this country’s constitutional referendum as ridiculous and unacceptable. According to Sputnik, five Tunisian parties announced today (Monday) after forming a new party coalition that they will not participate in Tunisia’s Dec. 17 parliamentary elections. “Khalil Al Zawieh,” head of the Faction for Work and Freedoms party, said his party and the Republican Party, the Democratic Movement, the Workers’ Party and the Qutb Party have decided to form a united coalition with the aim of defending freedoms.
