Tunisia Protests Against President's Measures
Tunisia is undergoing successive developments. After the resignation of 113 Ennahda Members, Tunis is seeing demonstrations against the latest measures taken by President Kais Saied.
The Tunisian capital saw demonstrations against President Kais Siaed and his latest measures.
President Kais Saied extended his powers on Wednesday to include legislative and executive authorities after he dismissed the government and suspended Parliament.
Al Mayadeen's correspondent reported that the demonstrators carried banners calling for the impeachment of Saied and the resumption of parliamentary activity.
Our correspondent also noted that several demonstrators were seen holding up the Tunisian constitution - an indication of their adherence to it.
The demonstrators chanted in support of the constitution, freedom, and dignity. The crowds also held up banners deploring France and accusing it of supporting the Tunisian president.
Ennahda Movement had previously expressed its rejection of "suspending the constitution and replacing it with a temporary governance system," warning against "an illegitimate autocracy."
These demonstrations came after 113 Ennahda members resigned on Saturday. Their resignation stems from the "bad choices" made by their chief.
