Tunisia: Nation Confirms Membership of African Peer Review Mechanism

Addis — Caretaker President Moncef Marzouki ratified on Saturday in Addis-Ababa (Ethiopia), Tunisia's membership of the African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM).

Launched in 2003 by the African Union, this mechanism commits member states to submit to periodical assessment by peers in four fields: democracy and political governance, governance and economic management, corporate governance and social and economic development.

The APRM will, according to Marzouki, certainly contribute to provide a new picture of the African continent, and Tunisia's membership of this mechanism reaffirms its commitment to make its democratic process a success.
