Tunisia: Ennahdha and CPR Refuse That Nidaa Tounès Enters the Govt - Iazhar Chamli

Tunis — The Ennahdha movement and the Congress for the Republic Party (CPR) refuse that Nidaa Tounès enters the next government, asserted on Wednesday to TAP news agency Mr. Lazhar Chamli, member of the Troika High Co-ordination Committee.

The meeting, Tuesday, of the Troika High Co-ordination Committee turned on the cabinet reshuffle, the authority of regulating the audiovisual sector, and the High Judiciary Authority, said Mr. Chamli.

Besides, he underlined that the "Freedom and Dignity" parliamentary group led by Néjib Hosni, WAFA group led by Abderraouf Ayadi and the Democratic Coalition led by Mohamed Hamdi gave an agreement of principle to join the new government.

"The issue of neutrality of the sovereignty ministries was not tackled and was delayed to the meeting of the Troika officials, on Thursday, he went on saying.

In another connection, the meeting was an occasion to review the list of the candidates to the High Authority for Audiovisual Communication. "After consultation, it was agreed to delay any decision in this connection, to check the independence of the candidates and make sure that they had no relation with the former regime, did not belong to the Dissolved RCD party and did not call Ben Ali to bid for the 2014 election," said Mr. Chamli.

The list includes notably Lotfi Hajji, Riadh Ferjani, Rachida Ennaifer, Radhia Saïdi, Abdelaziz Barouhi, Mohamed Nabil Naccache, Mongi Mabrouki and Mouna Ghariani.
