Tunisia: Ennahdha Shura Council Calls On NCA to Approve Election Date Set By Troika

Tunis — The Shura Council of Ennahdha Movement called on the National Constituent Assembly (NCA) to approve the date set by the ruling Troika (Ennahdha, CPR and Ettakatol) for the next elections and speed up the establishment of an independent higher authority for elections.

It also called for preventing the return of bigwigs of the disbanded Constitutional Democratic Rally to the political scene.

The Shura Council, which met last week-end, deemed essential enforcing law against any person involved in acts of violence whatever their political affiliation.

In a statement released Wednesday, it called on national forces with all their orientations to reach consensus around major issues to favour a peaceful democratic transition.

It also invited the Government to carry out necessary reforms in different sectors, inform citizens of difficulties faced by the country and get the accomplished achievements covered by the media.

Moreover, the Council argued for the establishment of foundations of an objective and neutral press, away from political considerations.
