In a written statement announced by the Media and Communication Office from the Ennahda Movement’s social media account, it was stated that the Executive Office was terminated and all of its members were dismissed, and that the office would be restructured “to meet the needs of the scene and provide the necessary efficiency.”
In the statement, it was noted that Rached Ghannouchi, the head of the movement, thanked the members of the Executive Office for their efforts and asked them to continue their duties until the new formation of the office.
On the other hand, Tunisian President Kais Saied decided to extend the validity period of the exceptional decisions taken on July 25 until further notice.
In the statement, the Tunisian Presidency stated that Saied “will make a statement to the Tunisian people in the coming days.”
Tunisians took to the streets in masses on July 25 due to the social, economic, political, and health crisis that continued at regular intervals and with different intensities.
During the demonstrations, an intense reaction was present to the settled politics in the country. In some regions, the headquarters of the Ennahda Movement, the largest party in the Assembly, were attacked.
President Kais Saied announced that he had enacted Article 80 of the Constitution, which gave him extraordinary powers within the context of the ‘dangers’ the country is facing.
Saied had announced that he suspended the Tunisian parliament’s work for 30 days, lifted the immunity of all deputies, and dismissed the prime minister while appointing himself as attorney general for corruption cases.
