Tunisians to demand end to President Kais Saied’s "exceptional" measures


(MENAFN) To insist an end to President Kais Saied’s "exceptional" measures, hundreds of Tunisians protested in the capital, Tunis.

In the demonstration, a number of activists, politicians and human rights defenders took part that was held in front of the Municipal Theater in Habib Bourguiba Avenue in central Tunis.

Saied ejected the government on July 25, suspended parliament, and assumed executive authority. As he claims that his measures are set to "save" the country, his critics charge him of planning a coup.

“No to coup against state institutions", “No to retracting from legitimacy” and “The power belongs to the people" were among banners waved by the demonstrators during Saturday’s protest.
