Tunisia takes practical steps to implement the detailed roadmap unveiled by President Kais Saied in December of 2021.
The blueprint unveiled by the president includes the launch of an electronic platform to receive proposals from the members of the public on potential amendments to the constitution.
Tunisia also started taking steps to bring Ennahda, the political arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in Tunisia, to account.
This comes against the background of accusations to the movement of involvement in a series of infringements.
The Tunisian Ministry of the Interior has reportedly put Noureddine Bhiri, Ennahda’s deputy head and the former minister of justice, under house arrest.
It said the measure against Bhiri was taken in the light of the law regulating the state of emergency in Tunisia.
The ministry added that it put another person under house arrest. Nonetheless, it had not revealed the name of this other person.
Bhiri’s arrest is probably the first measure to be taken by the Tunisian government against Ennahda.
Meanwhile, the Islamist movement accused the authorities of kidnapping Bhiri.
It held the Tunisian president and the Ministry of the Interior responsible for his safety.
Ennahda’s media arms also propagate special reports that aim to tarnish the reputation of the Tunisian president and government.
This comes as the government turns deaf ears to these reports, refusing to comment on them.
It says the aforementioned measures were taken on the road to holding corrupt persons accountable.
The Interior Ministry adds that the same measures are aimed at redressing the mistakes made in Tunisia since 2011.
Ennahda faces a series of accusations, including its involvement in the killing of leftist politicians Chokri Belaid and Mohamed Brahmi in 2013.
Over the past years, the politicians’ defense revealed evidence proving Ennahda’s involvement in their killing.
However, the defense lawyers had not taken any steps against the movement yet.
The whole case is also becoming part of political bargains between Ennahda and its political opponents
