TUNISIA, March 6. /ITAR-TASS/. Tunisian authorities have lifted the emergency rule that was introduced in the country after the revolution of January 14, 2011. The presidential administration of Tunisia reported this on Thursday.“The Republic’s president and head of the army Moncef Marzouki has issued a decree saying that from March 5, 2014, the emergency rule is lifted nationwide,” the communiqué says.
The message also specifies that the decision taken does not restrict the law enforcers’ powers in any way, as well as does not rule out the option of involving the army in case if needed.
The emergency rule was introduced in Tunisia after the “jasmine revolution” January 14, 2011 that put an end to the 23-year-long rule of president Zine El Abidine Ben Ali. In view of emerged social unrest and increased terrorism threat, the emergency rule was serially prolonged. The last prolongation was in force until June 2014.
