Tunisia: Al-Aridha Supports Any Initiative Leading Nation to Safety

Carthage — "Al-Aridha supports the organisation of a national dialogue as well as any initiative likely to help Tunisia reach safety and strengthen ties between the Tunisians," asserted on Thursday, President of the political affairs department within the People's Petition for Freedom, Justice and Development (Al-Aridha) party Nizar N'sibi.

During a meeting between Caretaker President of the Republic Moncef Marzouki and Al-Aridha delegation, Mr. N'sibi voiced hope to see this national dialogue ends up with a consensus around dates of end of drafting the constitution and holding elections.

The meeting, he went on saying, provided the occasion to submit a letter to the President of the Republic which sets the party's position vis-à-vis this dialogue which, he said "should end up with pragmatic and tangible results."

In this letter, Al-Aridha proposes the adoption of two pacts related to the abolition of torture and the fight against any form of violence", he went on saying.

In addition to Mr. N'sibi, the delegation gathered the Party's Secretary-General Mohamed Hamdi and National Constituent Assembly (NCA) member Said kharchoufi.
