Tunisia: President Saied calls to vote for a new constitution

Tunisian President Kais Saied has issued a new decree calling on citizens to a referendum on a new constitution scheduled for July 25.

Polls will start from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. local time and there will be a question about whether people agree with the new constitution, an official notice said.

It comes after he appointed an advisory committee to draft a new constitution for a ‘new republic’ as the opposition calls for a reversal.

Political parties in the country say they will boycott dialogue on the formation of the new constitution.

“Mr Saied’s action is unilateral,” they said.
