Tunisia: Echaab Movement Will Not Participate in Any Government Unless It Has a Clear Programme - Mohamed Brahmi

Carthage — Echaab Movement Secretary-General Mohamed Brahmi asserted, Tuesday, that his party will not participate in any government unless it has a clear programme for the remaining transitional period.

The meeting with Mr. Ali Larayedh, entrusted with forming a new government, "was an occasion to assert that the system of quotas in the distribution of ministerial portfolios could not resolve the problem," Mr. Brahmi specified.

"Factors of political crisis in the country are still present. Replacing officials while maintaining the same policy could not lead to the hoped-for results and meet the Tunisian people's expectancies," he affirmed.

Echaab Movement Secretary-General also said that he had presented to Mr. Larayedh the party's position which "considers that the government's success is inherent to a national dialogue in which all forces--civil society, parties, organisations and national personalities--supporting the Revolution objectives, will take part," he pointed out.

"We estimate that the Tunisian General Labour Union's initiative calling for national dialogue could be part of this process," he also said.
