Tunisia: People's Front, Al-Joumhouri and Al-Massar Stage Peaceful March in Tunis

Tunis — "Tunisia above all," is the key slogan chanted, Monday morning in Tunis, by the supporters of the People's Front, Al-Joumhouri (Republican Party) and Al-Massar (Democratic and Social Path) who staged a peaceful march in Habib Bourguiba avenue, in Tunis.

The participants also chanted slogans hostile to the government calling to urgent solutions to speed up the democratic transition process by means of elaborating a road map for the next political events.

Al-Joumhouri High Political Committee President Ahmed Néjib Chebbi said to TAP news agency, that Tunisia is going through a difficult period calling on the government to assume its responsibilities and the National Constituent Assembly to speed up the drafting of the new Constitution which should, according to him, meet the people's aspiration.

In turn, Al-Massar Secretary-General Ahmed Brahim underlined that Tunisia, today, needs union of all the political trends, indicating that the date of January 14 will remain in the national memory as it marks the end of dictatorship.

Besides, Mr. Nacer Laouini from the People's Front called on the government to give more interest to the underprivileged social categories in the interior regions and stop political violence in the country.
