Tunis — Socialist MP and Rapporteur to the Committee on Foreign Affairs at the French National Assembly Pouria Amirshahi stressed the need for Tunisia to "send a positive message to the French government and parliament to win back French investors' confidence."
Pouria Amirshahi, who conferred, Saturday in Bardo, with Speaker of the National Constituent Assembly (NCA), Mustapha Ben Jaafar expressed the commitment to strengthen the relations between the two parliamentary institutions, said an NCA press statement.
For his part, Ben Jaafar said the social demands and economic difficulties in Tunisia cannot be addressed in a relatively short period of time.
He emphasised the importance of reaching consensus between different political movements to draft a Constitution that meets the aspirations of the Tunisian people.
Mustapha Ben Jaafar said the date of the next elections will be set by NCA members on the basis of a proposal by the higher independent authority for elections.
He also commended France's support for Palestine's upgrade to UN Observer Status.
