Toubel expresses wish to see electoral law revised before upcoming municipal elections

Head of the parliamentary group of the Nidaa Tounes Movement, SofiAne Toubel, on Tuesday, expressed the desire to see the electoral law revised before the forthcoming municipal elections.

Speaking after the ceremony on Independence Day held at Carthage Palace, Toubel welcomed the Head of State’s proposal to change this law which “has several shortcomings,” he said.

He added that “the President of the Republic has entrusted the Prime Minister and the Minister of Justice with tabling a legislative initiative that will be clearly governmental”.

“The presidential initiative for the revision of the electoral law must help repair several shortcomings, including the non-emergence of a clear majority in the parliament,” said president of Afek Tounes party, Yassine Brahim.

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.
