Kasbah, — Interim Prime Minister Mehdi Jomaa has decided, within the framework of the Crisis Response Unit which met Monday in the Government's Palace in Kasbah, to freeze the activity of 157 organisations, out of 18,000 active in the country, according to a Prime Ministry statement.
The statement said the freeze does not mean the dissolution of concerned organisations, but is part of the administrative control falling under governors and in application of the provisions of Law No. 52 of 1975 fixing the attributions of senior regional administrative executives.
This is a precautionary measure taken for security reasons and the Secretariat General of the Government is making the necessary arrangements pursuant to the decree No. 88 for the year 2011, the statement highlighted.
It also noted that the judicial appeal remains open for all organisations, recalling that the decisions taken by the prime minister aim to ensure the success of the transition period and create all the conditions for the success of the upcoming elections.
