Tunisian President Kais Saied accused of coup amid clashes – Political News

Tunisia: key moments as political turmoil unfolds

Tunisia’s main political parties have accused the president of staging a coup after he removed the prime minister and suspended parliament.

Kais Saied, who also removed the defense minister, says he acted in accordance with the constitution.

The move followed violent mass protests Sunday over the government’s handling of the coronavirus outbreak and economic and social unrest.

Now calls for restraint from the international community are growing.

The UN said that “all disputes … must be resolved through dialogue,” while the EU urged all parties involved to respect the rule of law and avoid violence.

There were similar calls from the Arab League, Russia and Qatar. The United States expressed concern about the latest developments.

Clashes between Saied’s supporters and opponents continued Monday in the capital Tunis.

Stones were thrown in front of the legislature, which has been entrenched by troops.

Saied, an independent who was elected in 2019, has had a long-standing dispute with the man he has removed, Prime Minister Hichem Mechichi.

Mechichi has the backing of the largest party in parliament, Ennahda, which are moderate Islamists.

The Tunisian revolution in 2011 is often considered the only success of the Arab Spring revolts throughout the region, but it has not led to economic or political stability.

The recent spike in Covid cases has fueled long-standing public frustration. The Health Minister was fired last week after a failed vaccination campaign.

‘Until social peace returns’

On Sunday, thousands of people in Tunisia demonstrated against the prime minister and Ennahda.

The local party headquarters in the southwestern town of Touzeur was burned down.

In a televised speech, Saied said: “We have made these decisions … until social peace returns to Tunisia and until we save the state.”

He promised to respond to more violence with military force.

In the early hours of Monday, Parliament Speaker Rached Ghannouchi, who heads Ennahda, tried to enter the legislature. When he was blocked by Saied’s supporters, he and his own loyalists staged a sit-in protest.

Later Monday, Al-Jazeera TV, which has been seen as a supporter of Ennahda, said security forces raided its offices in Tunisia, disconnected all equipment and told staff to leave.

Protesters erupted into celebrations on Sunday at news that the prime minister had been removed from office.

Acute power struggle

Analysis by Rana Jawad, BBC North Africa Correspondent

For many, it feels like new hope after a year of chaotic governance; for others, a measure that is constitutionally questionable, with potentially destabilizing ramifications and far-reaching consequences.

The events are largely related to an acute power struggle between the presidency, the prime minister and the speaker of parliament.

Was it a takeover by the president or a temporary measure to get the country back on track? And will his political opponents mobilize their own support in the streets? If so, for what purpose?

The key to how all of this will play out will be how quickly a new prime minister is appointed and a new plan for moving forward is communicated.
