Tunisians demonstrate against president’s ‘exceptional’ procedures

(MENAFN) On Saturday, Sep. 18 hundreds of Tunisians protested in the capital, Tunis, to call for an end to President Kais Saied’s "exceptional" procedures.

A number of activists, politicians and human rights defenders participated in the demonstration, which occurred before the Municipal Theater in Habib Bourguiba Avenue in central Tunis.

On July 25, the president expelled the government, halted parliament, and assumed executive authority. While he claims that his exceptional procedures are supposed to "save" Tunisia, his critics blamed him of planning a coup.

“No to coup against state institutions", “No to retracting from legitimacy” and “The power belongs to the people" were amongst banners waved by the protestors in Saturday’s demonstration.
