ENNAHDHA, WAFA, OTHERS LIKELY TO FORM COALITION

Muslim World

Representatives of the Freedom and Dignity Group of the National Constituent Assembly of Tunisia, Wafa Movement, Congress for the Republic and Ennahdha Party, met on 13 February to discuss the recent political developments. After a frank discussion and wide-ranging assessment of the current national situation and required steps, they jointly expressed their attachment to national unity and commitment to the embodiment of the aims of the revolution and the legitimacy of the National Constituent Assembly and the democratic institutions based on it. These parties also expressed their absolute and strong condemnation of the assassination of Chokri Belaid and demanded to expedite the inquiry into the case in order to reveal the identity of the perpetrators who sought, through this crime, to undermine national unity and stability, overturn the legitimacy of elected institutions and call for foreign intervention.

They jointly expressed their commitment to the success of this transitional phase by completing the drafting of the constitution, holding elections at the earliest possible time and commitment to achieving the aims of the revolution as detailed in the joint political charter submitted to the Prime Minister. Also, they expressed their call for establishing broad national consensus around the main issues so as to facilitate the setting of an optimal timetable for the transition. Most importantly, they expressed their assessment that the current phase requires the existence of a national political coalition that is open to both partisan and independent figures, one that is supported by a broad political and popular support base and involves the elected National Constituent Assembly and that is committed to achieving the aims of the revolution, at the forefront of which is ensuring accountability for past violations; combating corruption and monopolies and tackling the rise in living costs; stimulating production and achieving security through strict application of the law and providing the political climate for achieving these imperatives.
