The United States is pressuring Tunisia to return to democracy

US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan urges the Tunisian president to return to the “path of democracy”. President Kais Saied fired the country’s prime minister last week and took over executive control of the country, writes Reuters.

Against the background of the national state of emergency generated by the pandemic and the weak government unable to manage the situation, Kais Saied allowed himself to dismiss the country’s prime minister. Moreover, President Saied froze the work of parliament and took executive control. His political opponents criticized the move, which he described as a coup.

In a telephone conversation, Sullivan stressed to Saied the need for “the rapid formation of a new government, led by a prime minister capable of stabilizing Tunisia’s economy and coping with the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as ensuring the timely return of the elected parliament.” “, Is shown in an official statement issued by the National Security Council of the White House.
