Tunisia’s president names law professor to head committee to draft a new constitution

Tunisian President Kais Saied nominated Sadok Belaid, a seasoned law professor, to lead an advisory committee tasked with crafting a new constitution to build “a new republic” on Friday, according to the presidency.

Saied, said he would draft a new constitution that would move Tunisia from pain to hope, after near a year since he seized control of the executive powers, dismissed parliament, and started ruling by decree, in a move his opponents described as a coup.
