MOSCOW, January 14. /ITAR-TASS/. Tunisia’s new Constitution can be approved by October 2014, Tunisian Ambassador in Moscow Ali Goutali told a news conference on Tuesday.
“The voting will take place shortly. A draft document contains 146 articles and 100 articles have been approved. The Constitution says Tunisia is a secular state. Unlike many Moslem countries the Constitution does not imply that Islam is a source for legislation. The first article says Islam is Tunisia’s religion and the Arabic language is a state language,” Goutali said.
The new draft also contains a provision on equal rights between men and women, the Tunisian diplomat said.
“Over three years Tunisia succeeded in carrying out democratic reforms. The government is searching for ways to solve social and economic problems. The government succeeded in slightly reducing the level of unemployment. The economic growth rates increased by 3.7 percent,” the Tunisian ambassador said.
