Tunisia: a member of parliament sues Kais Saied for ‘grabbing power’

Bichr Chebbi, MP of the Ennahdha party, is accusing Kais Saied the country’s president of a power grab and using the military force to shut down parliament.

Bichr Chebbi, 63-year-old has filed a legal court against President Kais Saied for violating the constitution and suspending parliament last month.

Ennahdha party which is the largest party in parliament, has distanced itself from Mr Chebbi’s court case but has denounced the sacking of the country’s Prime Minister.
