Tunisia: Call to Register Compromises in Constitution

Bardo — The participants in the Sunday dialogue session agreed to send a note to the President of the National Constituent Assembly (NCA).

The note will be handed by a representative of the liaison committee between the national dialogue and the NCA. It includes a call for the creation of a legal mechanism guaranteeing the registration of the compromises, including those achieved after December 30, in the Constitution, President of the committee Bouali M'barki said after the lifting of the session.

He specified that the meeting, devoted to the examination of the report of the compromise commission, could not tackle the disputes because the participants lingered on means to establish a legal mechanism to register all the compromises reached in the Constitution.

A dialogue session is scheduled for Monday at 2 p.m. in the Human Rights and Transitional Justice Ministry to examine these points, he said.

In turn, President of Ennahdha party political bureau Ameur Larayedh said that the session focused on means to support and implement the compromises adopted.

For Progressive Popular Party President Hichem Hosni, the agreement reached within the compromise commission are not definitive, which means that the door must remain open for possible amendments insofar as some parties expressed reservations on several articles of the Constitution related to the judicial power and the transitory provisions.
