Tunisia’s President Kais Saied has issued an order to extend the suspension of parliament, which includes the removal of the immunity of Members of Parliament.
This was made known in a statement by the Tunisia’s president’s office on Wednesday evening.
According to the statement, President Saied will also carry out major political reforms in the country’s parliament. The statement however did not elaborate on the reforms.
The president has been criticized for violating the constitution and undermining democracy in the country after he fired the prime minister and suspended parliament on 25 July.
