Crisis in Tunisia

Boden’s two sons take office at a time of political and economic crisis. Two months ago, the president took over almost all power in the country, what opponents call a “coup”. Said froze, among other things, the work of Parliament and dismissed the ministers of the previous government. Last week, he announced that he intends to comply only partially with the constitution in force since 2014.

Tunisian society is divided. Some support the president’s actions, believing that this is the only way to counteract the failure of the state. Opponents talk about the return of authoritarianism. The “coup” also caused concern in the international public opinion, which calls for the restoration of democratic standards and the gains of the “Arab Spring”.
