Ennahdha is not against equality of inheritance as long as it does not oppose Constitution or principles of Islam

Ennahdha has no objection to raising the issue of inheritance equality as long as it does not oppose the constants of the constitution and the principles of Islam, Noureddine Arbaoui, chairman of the party’s political bureau told TAP.

The Ennahdha movement is waiting to see the results of work of the committee tasked with studying this issue, he pointed out.

He added, “President Beji Caid Essebsi put the gender equality in its context, announcing it in his speech on National Women’s Day, celebrated on August 13 of each year.

Ennahdha was not called to participate in the committee’s work, he said.

Equality in inheritance arises from a religious and societal point of view and all political and civil parties have the right to take part in discussions on this issue, he stressed.

President Beji CaA�d Essebsi decided on Sunday in his speech on Women’s Day the creation of a Committee at the Presidency of the Republic in charge of individual freedoms and equality.

This committee will be responsible for drawing up a report on the reforms related to individual freedoms and equality in accordance with the provisions of the 2014 Constitution, international human rights standards and contemporary trends in the field of freedoms and equality.

In his speech, Beji CaA�d Essebsi said he was confident that Tunisian lawyers would find suitable formulas that would not oppose religious precepts or constitutional principles in order to achieve equality in inheritance.
