Moncef Marzouki denounces “overlooking anniversary of adoption of constitution”

“Al-Irada” party president Moncef Marzouki said it was unfortunate that “the anniversary of the adoption of the 2014 constitution was passed over” by the government and the House of People’s Representatives.

“Instead of holding a plenary session in the presence of national figures including the then head of state (Moncef Marzouki) as signatory of the constitution, the parliament merely organised a dull meeting, he said at a popular meeting in Djerba Houmet Souk organised by his party on this occasion.

Marzouki promised that “the revolutionary forces once in power will make January 27 each year a national holiday in the same way as Independence Day.”

He said that “this constitution is the first to have received unanimity of the Tunisian people and is one of the most modern constitutions in the world”.

The former president of the republic pointed out that “the current ruling system plots against the constitution and wants to ignore it in order to amend it”, calling for the preservation of “this gain and win the battle of its reactivation through pressure or by the return of the revolutionary forces after the 2019 elections.

The leader of the Irada party has described the situation in the country as a “derailing train which in his view requires “putting Tunisia back on track and setting aside the false consensus”, in reference to the ruling coalition of Nidaa Tounes and Ennahdha parties.

Marzouki called for participating massively in the May 6 municipal elections to impose participatory democracy, regain confidence in the country, the revolution and the ability to launch reforms.”
