“Revision of electoral law aims to establish principle of majority”, says Ghannouchi

President of the Ennahdha Movement, Rached Ghannouchi, on Tuesday, welcomed President Beji Caid Essebsi’s proposal to revise the electoral law, saying it aims to establish the principle of majority.

“The proportional voting system currently adopted by Tunisia has brought a fragmented political landscape,” he regretted after a ceremony held at Carthage Palace on the 62nd anniversary of Independence.

“This electoral law still has positive points. It consolidates the power of coalition and pluralism and prevents the monopoly of power by a single party in a country that still has bad memories of the experience of the one-party regime, “he added.

In the same context, Ghannouchi hailed the rejection by the Head of State in his speech on Independence Day of exclusion and his commitment to open the way for parties without seats in parliament to participate in the government.

President Beji CaA�d Essebsi, Tuesday, deemed it desirable to change the election law before the forthcoming elections.

I endorse calls for a review. This is highly advisable and we need to make the move before the next elections in spite of criticism,” he said during a ceremony held at Carthage Palace on the occasion of the 62nd anniversary of independence.

In this vein, CaA�d Essebsi suggested the setting up of a small team within the committee of representatives of Carthage Document signatories to revise the law.
