1 thought on “Tunisia – "political earthquake"”

  1. Kais Saied is supported by the hardliners in Nahda and Mourou was basically put up to show that the party is “moderate” – a clever double game of Rachid Ghannouchi with a party that is increasingly split. Otherwise the vote is quite rational. It is an open revolt against the lack of reforms, declining living standards rampant corruption and the grotesque squabbling of the political parties. Much due to the sad legacy of late president Essebsi. The man who thought he was Bourguiba as La Fontaine would have put it “la grenouille qui voulait se faire aussi grosse que le boeuf!”
