Tunis — Secretary-General of the Republican Party (Al Joumhouri) Maya Jribi said, on Wednesday, that the parties making up the National Salvation Front are presently consulting together at the seat of the Human Rights Ministry where the national dialogue was poised to commence.
Maya Jribi told TAP news agency that the situation "is dangerous" and held responsible those who abstain from implementing the Quartet initiative by announcing the resignation of the Government.
She was also critical of the delay in the news briefing which interim PM Ali Larayedh was due to hold on Wednesday afternoon following an extraordinary cabinet meeting.
It is abnormal that the process chartering a way out of the standoff be blocked on security grounds, she pointed out in reference to the clashes that occurred on Wednesday afternoon in Sidi Bouzid between National Guard officers and terrorists and which claimed the lives of six officers.
Al Joumhouri's Issam Chebbi urged demonstrators to remain mobilised in Kasbah Square till Larayedh Government steps down, a sine qua non condition for the start of the national dialogue.
