Tunisia: Differences On Which Elections to Hold First to Be Settled in a Week - Samir Cheffi

Bardo — Differences on which elections to hold first will be settled within one week at the latest, Deputy Secretary-General of the Tunisian General Labour Union (UGTT) Samir Cheffi announced on Wednesday.

Voter registration may therefore start on June 23, he added.

"Parties represented at the National Dialogue are keen on developing consensus about the organisation of elections to come up with a consensual formula at the National Constituent Assembly (NCA)," he told TAP.

"The formula which would be brought before the Assembly should reflect what we would have agreed upon," he indicated.

Cheffi reminded that "political parties at the national dialogue adopted a responsible attitude when issues brought to the table were even more complex."

Political parties are committed to completing the compromise making process, he asserted.
