Tunis — The Congress for the Republic Party (CPR) staged, on Monday, on the occasion of the celebration of the second anniversary of the Revolution, a protest rally in front of the Saudi embassy in Tunis, claiming the extradition of former President Zine el Abidine Ben Ali and his trial.
Mr. Mehdi Ammar, CPR National Constituent Assembly (NCA) member said to TAP news agency that "the Tunisian people expects that Ben Ali be fairly judged like any Tunisian citizen."
The trial of the corrupts is capital before any reconciliation, he emphasised, asserting that "Tunisia is capable, two years after the Revolution, to guarantee to Ben Ali a fair trial."
On the fringes of the rally, Mr. Tarek Kahlaoui CPR politburo member and Troika high co-ordination committee member underlined the existence of "problems" in the consultation under way on the cabinet reshuffle expected in the coming days.
"The CPR estimates that the cabinet reshuffle should concern the sovereignty ministries," he said, underlining that his party does not target precise ministries, "but we need a serious and deep cabinet reshuffle" he further said.
Besides, Mr. Kahlaoui evoked "the urgent objectives" in the government action plan debated within the Troika, underlining that any delay in their achievement "does not only threatens the Troika and its parties but also the whole democratic process."
