Municipal elections will not give a majority to any party (Tahar Ben Hassine)

President of Al-Mostakbal party Tahar Ben Hassine said Saturday in Kairouan his party will run in the municipal elections in more than 50 constituencies through 36 lists within the Civil Union (composed of 11 parties) and 18 party lists with independents.

Chairing a conference of party officials in Kairouan, Tahar Ben Hassine said the municipal elections will not give a majority to any party.

The same electoral system will be maintained, he regretted. The same one who has slowed down the government’s action and prevented it from making decisions, he pointed out.

According to him, “it will be the same for municipalities, no party could make decisions”.

Speaking of external indebtedness, Tahar Ben Hassine said the solution rests in the application of the principle of tax justice and control of illicit enrichment.

Eighty per cent of state officials pay their taxes while those with huge wealth from smuggling and tax evasion do not, he pointed out.

On the general situation of the country, the president of the Al Mostakbal party considered that the problems suffered by Tunisia are the result of bad governance.

The solution, according to him, lies in the establishment of an effective tax system and the dismantling the system of corruption.
