I’ll rule by decree not 2014 Constitution-Tunisian Prez Saied
Tunisian President Kais Saied is under presssure to immediately exit power after he declared that he will rule the North African country by a decree.
President Saied made the infamous pronouncement to entrench himself in power by decree, two months after he sacked his Prime Minister, suspended parliament and unilaterally took over the presidency.
The declaration to throw away portions of the 2014 Constitution has caught the anger of Tunisians and received a total backlash from about 20 human rights groups who assembled at iconic National Theatre for major demonstration today Sunday attended by thousands of anti-Said protestors saying “Military government must fall “.
‘Return to tyranny’
Belgassen Bounara waved a duplicate of the 2014 constitution that Saied plans to revamp. He came from Tataouine, in southern Tunisia, a helpless locale forgotten by the state.
The computer sales rep said he came to exhibit on the grounds that “Saied needs to dispose of the constitution and our vote based system. He is taking us back into fascism,” Bounara revealed.
Sunday’s protest was the second since Saied assumed executive authority and suspended parliament on July 25.
Be that as it may, Saied’s move has the agreement of enormous areas of the populace, who consider him to be as important to address an emergency of political loss of motion, monetary stagnation and a helpless reaction to the Covid pandemic.
On the opposite side of the road, a little yet vocal gathering of Saied allies recited, “Kais Saied is acceptable.”
Africa has witnessed several coup at Mali, Guinea and unsuccessful coup attempts in Sudan over inordinate desire of presidents to hold onto power by crooked means.
