Tunisia: Deadlock Persists On Withdrawal of Confidence From Government - Mouldi Jendoubi

Tunis, — The plenary session of the national dialogue has not yet resulted into consensus over the issue of withdrawal of confidence from the government, Deputy Secretary-General of the Tunisian General Labour Union (UGTT) Mouldi Jendoubi said.

He told the press that Ennahdha movement has presented a new amendment proposal by virtue of which the party commits not to withdraw its confidence from the government for the remaining transitional period.

Jendoubi said political stakeholders are firmly opposed to this proposal which according to them does not guarantee deputies' commitment to respect it.

The position on the issues of withdrawal of confidence and the choice of election date "is political par excellence," the unionist noted, highlighting the importance to learn from experts' advice.
