Tunisia’s Opposition Parties Stage Heavy Protest Against The President

There seems to be unrest in Tunisia as opposition parties and other disgruntled Tunisians staged a protest against the country’s economic crisis.

The protesters on Saturday registered their grievances against the president’s increasingly authoritarian idea, to mark 12 years since Tunisian protesters unleashed Arab Spring uprisings around the region.

According to VOA, the protest was launched against the disastrous parliamentary elections last month in which just 11% of voters cast ballots.

The elections were meant to change and redesign a legislature that President Kais Saied dissolved in 2021. The second round has been set for January 29.

It was staged in the capital, Tunis as the North African nation is going through a major economic crisis, with inflation and joblessness on the rise.

Tunisians have been hit with soaring food prices and shortages of fuel and basic staples like sugar, vegetable oil and rice in recent months.
