The Tunisian parliament votes to amend the electoral law to exclude popular names

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates:- The Tunisian parliament, with a majority of 128 votes to 30, with 14 abstentions, voted on amendments to the election law, leading to the exclusion of prominent presidential candidates, such as Olfa Ramburg, Nabil al-Qarawi and Abeer Mousi.

The parliamentary elections are expected to take place on October 6, 2019, while presidential elections are scheduled for November 17, 2019.

This amendment comes about a month before the filing of lists of candidates for the legislative elections in Tunisia.

The amendments introduce new conditions to the candidate, including the failure to distribute direct assistance to citizens or benefited from political propaganda.

Article 42 bis of this electoral law states that "No candidate shall be allowed to run in the legislative elections for any person or list that the electoral commission shall have during the 12 months prior to the elections to perform, Or "shows that he or she has benefited from political publicity".

The new text could be especially diverted without nominating media tycoon Nabil al-Qarawi and businesswoman Olfa Terrace Ramburg.

While the government said the move protected the democratic process, its opponents described it as a strong setback for emerging democracy.
