Tunisia is moving towards a new republic free of Brotherhood

Tunisian President Kais Saied calls for a national dialogue and a new constitution.

The first anniversary of what Tunisians call “the course of correcting the Tunisian revolution” is approaching 25 July 2021, when Tunisian President Kais Saied took exceptional measures to freeze and then dissolve Parliament and dismiss the Brotherhood government.

Today Tunisians are preparing to engage in national dialogue after the exclusion of the parties that have caused the country’s political and economic crises, notably the Ennahda movement.

Saied issued a decision to form a committee tasked with managing the national dialogue, and said that the dialogue would not be attended by “thieves and putschists,” referring to the Ennahda movement and its supporting forces.

He stressed that “he will not negotiate with anyone who wants to attack the State, and he will not recognize those who sold the country or try to do so.”

The dialogue would take place on the basis of the results of the national consultation (popular referendum), the preliminary results of which had been announced days earlier and which indicated that the majority supported the presidential system.

Tunisia’s president drew up a political road map, including a popular referendum on the new constitution on 25 July and parliamentary elections on 17 December this year.

He announced the establishment of the “National Consultative Commission for a New Republic”, and the appointment of Professor of Law, Brigadier General Sadiq Belaid, as its coordinating head, and the commission will undertake the preparation of a new constitution.

The Brotherhood have no place

While the Tunisian political and civil parties and forces welcomed the new decisions, the Brotherhood’s Ennahda movement rejected them, and began working to provoke the street and spread chaos, and called on its supporters to what it described as “continuing the struggle.”

As usual in shuffling papers and falsifying facts, the movement justified its call for chaos as an attempt to “save the country from the dangers of economic, financial and social collapse and the international isolation it is experiencing due to the coup and its policies.”


Observers believe that the calls of the Ennahda movement aim to turn the table and create chaos in Tunisia, especially as it coincided with the Tunisian judiciary’s decision to ban the travel of 34 of the movement’s leaders, led by Rached Ghannouchi.

The writer and political researcher, Ismail Dabara, said that “there is a state of political movement in Tunisia currently, aimed at building a new republic, in which there is no place for extremist movements that practice violence against Tunisians,” noting that the national dialogue involves all political and civil forces that supported the course of correction or its support, and it does not include the forces of violence and terrorism, including the Ennahda movement, especially after the judiciary proved that it was involved in the assassinations of politicians Belaid and Brahmi.

He described Ennahda’s calls for its supporters to struggle to restore democracy as calls for chaos and stirring up the Tunisian street, considering them inflammatory, ultimately aimed at restoring the movement to rule and control over Parliament once again.

According to Dr. Mohamed Fawzi, a researcher in regional affairs at the Al-Ahram Center for Political Studies, the Ennahda movement is currently facing one of the largest, most complex and difficult crises since its founding, because the movement is now not trying to move only in order to maintain its political and social presence in the Tunisian scene, rather, it struggles to maintain its organizational cohesion and survival.

In Fawzi’s view, that the new Tunisian president’s decisions constitute a pivotal turning point for the exceptional phase in Tunisia, especially in light of the turbulent context in which the country is experiencing politically, economically and socially, considering that the national dialogue is the best way to bring Tunisia to safety and cross the exceptional phase it is currently experiencing.
