Tunisian authorities were blamed by Ennahda for the rising threats against political opponents in the country.
Ennahda reiterated its rejection of attempts to divide Tunisians and incitement against political opponents in a statement shared.
Without providing details about the nature of threats against opposition politicians, it held the Tunisian authorities responsible for “the rising threats against political figures opposing the coup.”
No comment was made from the Tunisian authorities on Ennahda’s statement.
Since July 25, 2021, when President Kais Saied dismissed the government, suspended parliament, and assumed executive authority, in a move decried by opponents as a “coup,” Tunisia has been in the throes of a deep political crisis.
A severe economic crisis in the country has been aggravated by the COVID-19 pandemic amid the ongoing Russian war on Ukraine.
Saied dissolved the suspended parliament in March, shortly after lawmakers convened a plenary session to overturn his measures.
