Tunisia: SNJT Threatens to Seek Judicial Redress If IHAE Make-Up Is Deemed 'Irregular'

Tunis — National Union of Tunisian Journalists (SNJT) chairwoman Nejiba Hamrouni said, on Friday at a news conference, that the union could resort to the administrative justice, or take any other legal action, if the formation of the Independent Higher Authority for Elections (IHAE) is deemed "irregular."

Appealing to justice is a serious likelihood if "IHAE does not include in its composition two representatives proposed by SNJT, in compliance with Article 7 of Decree N° 116," she specified.
