Tunisia’s Islamist-inspired Ennahda party has rejected President Kais Saied’s proposed new constitution and called on its members across the country to boycott a referendum later this month.
While addressing newsmen in Tunis, the party’s spokesperson, Imed Khemeri, stated that the vote was “not in the interests of Tunisians”.
Pundits accuse President Saied, who suspended the government last July and dissolved parliament before usurping executive power, of trying to return the country to totalitarian rule.
He denies the claim. Other Tunisian parties have made similar calls for a boycott on the referendum slated for July 25.
