Author of proposed new Tunisia constitution disavows project

The Tunisian jurist who oversaw the drafting of a new constitution submitted to President Kais Saied said Sunday it has been changed into a charter that could lead to a dictatorship.

Some articles of the draft constitution published last Thursday in the official gazette could “pave the way for a dictatorial regime”, warned Sadeq Belaid, who headed a committee tasked with drafting the document.

The published text is “completely different” from that submitted in person to the president late last month, the respected jurist told AFP.
