Ghannouchi announces his willingness to resign from the presidency of the Ennahda movement to solve the Tunisian crisis – today 24

The leader of the Ennahda movement, Rached Ghannouchi, said that he is ready to resign from the leadership of the movement in case “any party presents a solution to the Tunisian problem”.

The same official explained: “The direction of the movement and the presidency of the council or any other presidency is an easy and small matter in front of the interests of Tunisia, and therefore if any party offers us a solution to the Tunisian problem that requires this sacrifice From us, this is a simple matter, but if we take the initiative to give up our position, it is in whose interest and whose wish?”

Ghannouchi, as he told the Turkish Anadolu Agency on Wednesday, stressed that “democracy is made by the Tunisians, not the Americans, not the French, not the English.”

The same spokesman continued: “The people elected Qais Saeed by 73 percent in 2019 and reduced it to 23 percent in the referendum (the official figure is 30.5 percent), indicating that he lost his popularity.” .

Regarding the next stage in Tunisia after the referendum, Ghannouchi said: “What happened after the referendum did not change our position, but confirmed it. It is the counter-revolution that conspired against the revolution, and over the course of 10 years of the revolution, black years and ruin were considered to justify the coup… We said from the beginning that we would resist and we have been for a year. We are alone in the arena of resistance, and now the majority of the Tunisian people are in a state of resistance to the coup and its consequences”.

Regarding the Tunisian opposition, Ghannouchi commented: “The opposition is united in its objectives. There are at least two groups that have the same objectives, and if they do not move into one, convergence is a matter of time because people meet in ideas and goals and then join their ranks.”

It is noteworthy that Tunisia lives in the midst of a severe political crisis since the Tunisian president Kais Saied, from July 25, 2021, took executive power by dismissing the then prime minister, then dissolving the parliament and launching the ruling by decree in a move that his opponents described as a “coup d’état” and considered it a “path correction”.
