TUNIS, October 24. (Itar-Tass) – The leading opposition party of Tunisia, Nidaa Tounes (Call for Tunisia), has ruled out the possibility for a “national dialog” on how to exit the political crisis until the government provides a written commitment step down, said the organization’s leader and former Prime Minister of Tunisia Beji Caid el Sebsi.
The opposition demands that the Cabinet is disbanded in three weeks after talks with the ruling Ennahda (Renaissance) party begin. The talks were postponed until Friday due to Tunisian Prime Minister Islamist Ali Laarayedh saying that he was for the principle of retiring the Government without providing any concrete deadlines.
Meanwhile, national unrest over the policies introduced by the Islamist cabinet is increasing. Ennahda office located in Kef Governorate in the north-west part of the country was attacked Thusday: a group of people stormed the building and trashed the office.
Local media reported that the attack was carried out by citizens who were outraged by the deaths of six soldiers of Tunisia’s National Guard after a skirmish with a terrorist group.
The government was accused of numerous military casualties: the public deems it to be unable to successfully resolve the security issue in the country. Moreover, the opposition accuses Ennahda in turning a blind eye to Salafi radical groups.
