23/07/2020 – Tunisian President Kais Saied on Wednesday said that the army will take action against conspirators.
« Everyone who conspires against the Tunisian state has no place […] the Tunisian army is ready at any time and any place and will confront anyone who infringes upon the state, » he said in a statement issued after his visit to the army headquarters in the northern province of Bizerte.
Saied also vowed « to foil the chaos they are trying to bring in the country ».
Tunisia is facing a severe political crisis as the opposition Free Constitutional Party set a strike inside the parliament demanding a no-confidence vote against Parliament Speaker Rached Ghannouchi.
A number of Tunisian lawmakers consider the call by Abir Moussi, head of the Free Constitutional Party bloc, a move to disrupt the parliament.
