Tunisia: Club of Madrid Willing to Support Political Process Initiated By Post-Revolution Nation

Bardo — A delegation from Club of Madrid stated willingness to support the political process initiated by Post-Revolution Tunisia and assist its efforts in matters of democratic transition.

During a meeting held Tuesday in Bardo with Speaker of the National Constituent Assembly Mustapha Ben Jaafar, the delegation led by Mrs. Kim Campbell, Secretary General of the Club and former Canadian Prime Minister and Petre Roman, former Romanian Prime Minister, stressed the commitment of the organisation to step up consultations with Tunisia and help it built on successful experiences in democratic transition.

Ben Jaafar highlighted the magnitude of the socio-economic challenges faced by Tunisia in this transition stage, saying the country needs support from its friends to ensure the success of this transition process.

The Club of Madrid is an independent non-profit organisation composed of 88 democratic former presidents and prime ministers from 58 different countries.

It constitutes the world's largest forum of former Head of State and Government who have come together to respond to a growing demand for support among leaders in two key areas: democratic leadership and governance; and response to crisis and post-crisis situations.
