Head of Tunisia’s Constitution Committee Delivers Draft to President

The head of Tunisia’s constitution committee delivered the draft of a new constitution to the president Kais Saied on Monday, the presidency said.

 

Saied, who seized executive power last year, dissolved parliament and ruled by decree – a move opponents called a coup – said some chapters in the draft constitution needed amendments and revisions.

 

The president intends to put the new constitution to a referendum on July 25, though the opposition has said it will boycott the plebiscite.
