Critics label Tunisian president’s decisions to dismiss gov’t, as “coup”


(MENAFN)Tunisia’s moderate Islamist Ennahda party urged President Kais Saied to engage in talks to evade worsening the country’s political crisis.

Ennahda further declared that "The possible and effective way-out of these problems will not be through monopolizing power, which can only increase the spread of corruption, nepotism, and injustice."

Saied released the government of Prime Minister Hichem Mechichi, froze the parliament, and assumed executive authority with the assistance of a new prime minister.

The move was declined by most of Tunisia's parliamentary blocs, including Ennahda that condemned Saied’s decisions as a “coup”.
