Tunisia: A new political scene in the face of the largest Islamic party

Tunisia, Awad Salam / Video

The political scene in Tunisia changed rapidly and abruptly. After a dispute between the two largest political blocs in the People's Assembly, the parties Nidaa Tunis and Nahdha Movement ended 4 years of consensus. Tunisia has only benefited from deterioration at all political, economic and security levels.

The NDP announced its fusion within the party Nidaa Tunis Movement, in the face of the Nahdha party, which announced the President of Tunisia, Béji Caid Sibsi, the collapse of the consensus between him and the party he founded and was his candidate for the presidency and the relative majority in parliament in the legislative elections in 2014.

The dispute between the two parties over the dismissal of the current government, headed by Youssef Al-shahid, but the Nahdhas adherence of this government was a cause of strained relations between the two parties, while this disagreement did not occur at the beginning of consensus on the government of Al-habib Esid, the first head of government after the legislative and presidential elections.

A dispute between Prime Minister Yusuf al-Shahid and the son of President Hafez al-Sibasi led to the beginning of tension and rumors about the fate of the government.

Today, after the announcement of the merger between the two parties, the leader in Nidaa Tunis, Fawzi Al-Lumi, announced that the leadership is from a political office (13 members) and a political body (50 members) and the composition will be as follows:

Head of the political body: Hafez Qaid al-Sibsi

General Coordinator of the Political Bureau: Reza Belhadj

Secretary General of the Political Bureau: Salim Riahi

Reza Sharaf El Din: Supervision of the Tunis Appeal Conference

Anas Al-Hattab: Spokesperson for the Tunis Appeal

Following the announcement of this formation, the new Secretary-General of Nidaa Tunis, Salim Riahi, called on Yusuf's government to resign soon, adding that it had not succeeded in carrying out the economic and social programs that were set up for it.

 Al-Reyahi welcomed the so-called gathering initiative, stressing that other parties are in the process of consulting and negotiating with it to join it, in the interest of the country.

While the agreement with the Free Patriotic Party was the step that Tunisian voters expected after the legislative elections, especially that then party leader Baiji al-Sibsi said: "Whoever did not elect the appeal,"Who did not elect Nidaa Tunis as if he was elected Nahdha"However, the disappointment of the voters, where he agrees with the Renaissance, contrary to his covenant with the citizens who elected him.

But after the collapse of this consensus, the Free Patriotic Party (NDP) was the stick of Moses, which is trying to sink the Islamic Party, not only by consensus but by the integration of the two parties.

The leader of the movement, Abdellatif al-Makki, revealed that there is a great awareness within Nahdha movement of the need to have a new president on its head, pointing out that there are those who headed it from inside the movement previously such as Ali El-Irayiedh and Hammadi Jebali, which is guaranteed by the Basic Law at its discretion .

In his interview with Al-Sabah newspaper, Al-Makki explained that the "sharp" leadership of the party harmed him, because it would have been better to miss them by many opportunities, indicating that the participatory leadership allows more mastery and unifying the efforts and greater exploitation of different visions and ideas within the movement.

With regard to the powers enjoyed by the president of the movement in accordance with the Basic Law, he said that he sought and seeks to change this law because a party the size of the Renaissance movement must have a participatory system without canceling the role of the president.

However, things seem to be going against what the foreign hands of the Islamic Movement in North Africa and Tunisia have done. But after four years and the rules of the movement are in place in all parts of the country in Tunisia, it is difficult to predict the future politically, security ally and economically.
