Individual Freedom and Equality Committee to present its report on legislation in February 2018

The Individual Freedom and Equality Committee will end its work on the reform proposals on equality and individual freedoms in February 2018 and will present its report to the President of the Republic promptly, said Bochra Belhaj Hmida, chair of the commission.

In a statement to TAP, on her meeting Wednesday with president Beji CaA�d Essebsi, as part of the follow-up of the committee’s action, Bochra Belhaj Hmida said she had told the President of the Republic that “the committee has identified all discriminatory laws contrary to individual liberties and the provisions of the Constitution relating to rights and freedoms”.

According to Belhaj Hmida, the committee has begun, in the light of this inventory, the development of new legislation that will replace repressive laws.

“The committee has consulted with the various stakeholders, including civil society, professors from Zitouna University and the relevant ministries,” she said, adding that a dialogue will be established with political parties on individual freedoms and equality next December.

During the meeting, emphasis was also placed on the imperative to maintain the general guidelines laid out by the Head of State in his speech of August 13, on Women’s Day and respect the duration of the committee’s work (6 months), according to a statement of the Presidency of the Republic.
