Choice of date for special session under discussion (Ennaceur)

Speaker of the House of People’s Representatives (HPR), Mohamed Ennaceur said on Tuesday that the conditions for organising an extraordinary parliamentary session have not yet been met.

He added in a press statement following a meeting with the presidents of the parliamentary groups that “discussions are under way on the choice of a date for the special session”, which is expected to take place in September.

Ennaceur explained that among the conditions for holding this extraordinary session was a petition signed by at least 74 MPs proposing to organise a special session and fix its schedule of work or a correspondence from the Prime Minister calling for a special session for the review of the expected cabinet reshuffle.

In turn, MP Mongi Rahoui, who has replaced the president of the Popular Front group at the meeting, said that the presidents of the parliamentary groups have not yet agreed on the filling of vacancies in the council of the “Independent High Authority for the elections which requires the presence of at least 145 Members during the plenary devoted to this purpose.

According to him, parliamentary groups proposed to include the consideration of the draft law on administrative reconciliation in the timetable for the special session. A proposal that was rejected by others, he said.

Article 57 of the Constitution stipulates that “During its recess, the Assembly of the Representatives of the People shall convene in an extraordinary session upon the request of the President of the Republic, the Head of Government, or one-third of its members, to examine a specific agenda.
