Tunisia: Islamic Front Deems Useless Council of Elders

Tunis — The Islamic Front, Thursday, criticised the way members of the Council of Elders were appointed by the Interim Prime Minister, deeming it useless given the political past of some of its members.

The Front suggests, in a statement, dissolving any party or association whose involvement in the murder of late Chokri Belaid, Secretary-General of the Unified Democratic Patriotic Party, would be proven.

The Islamic Front is made up of the Popular Congress, the Movement of the Free Tunisian Youth, the Party of Justice and Development and the Nation for Freedom and Justice Party.
