The Interior Ministry has officially informed the Speaker of the House of People’s Representatives, Rached Ghannouchi, that he is under serious threat of assassination, announced Maher Medhioub, Parliamentary Speaker Assessor in charge of communication.
In a statement to TAP, Medhioub said that the Interior Ministry services have strengthened the personal protection measures of the ARP Speaker, adding that this is not the first time that Ghannouchi is informed that a death threat is hanging over him.
Medhioub added that the parliament strongly condemns this threat “aimed at undermining the elected constitutional institutions and plunging the country into a spiral of violence and anarchy”.
He, however, expressed the confidence of the parliament in the capacity of the security institution to face any attempt to destabilise the country.
