Chahed decides to apply dismissal measures of BCT Governor

Prime Minister Youssef Chahed decided on Wednesday to apply the dismissal measures of Chedly Ayari, Governor of the Central Bank of Tunisia (BCT).

In this context and in accordance to provisions of Article 78 of the Constitution, which stipulates that the President of the Republic appoints the governor of the BCT on proposal of the Prime Minister and after approval of the absolute majority of the attendees in the House of the People’s representatives, Prime Minister presented to President Beji Caid Essebsi, a proposal to dismiss Chedli Ayari from his duties as Governor of the BCT, suggesting that Marouane Abassi be appointed in his place.

According to several parties, this decision to sack Chedly Ayari, who has been the governor of the BCT, since June 2012, comes following the ranking of Tunisia on Wednesday, on the blacklist of countries most exposed to money laundering and financing of terrorism, published on the website of the European Parliament.

Professional organisations and deputies recently called for the dismissal of Chedly Ayari, given the deterioration of the dinar against international currencies.
