Is political Islam planning to assassinate Tunisian President?

Al-Bilad program discussed Monday the most prominent security and political developments in Tunisia, and their direct connection to the security conditions inside Libya, especially after Tunisian President Kais Saied confirmed that he had been subjected to an assassination attempt, coinciding with the receipt of a report by the Ministry of the Interior in Tripoli, stating that there are elements Al-Wattia base, which was recently denied by the ministry of interior.

Tunisian journalist Mabrouka Khudair said in a statement to “218News”: The Libyan Foreign Ministry denied training terrorist groups inside Libya, in order to infiltrate Tunisia to assassinate Tunisian President.

She added: Since yesterday; some Tunisian media are reporting news that an extremist was targeting Saied, and this news is still unconfirmed by the official authorities.

Khudair continued: “The President had spoken during the past two days about an intention to target him, pointing the finger at political Islam, and that there are those who want to cut off the attempt to reform the country and fight corruption.”

She indicated that it is not the first time that the President has made such statements on more than one occasion.

The Tunisian journalist confirmed to the “Al-Bilad” program that investigations are still ongoing regarding the assassination of the president, and some elements have already been arrested and are being investigated.

She added, “There are those who are trying to exploit the fragile security conditions in Libya and Tunisia to create chaos.”

At the end of her dialogue with the “Al-Bilad” program, Khudair explained that all eyes are on Tunisia in the coming hours, and a new prime minister and his government composition will be announced in order to lead the country in this transitional phase.

At the same time; experts in the constitutional field believe that more exceptional measures will be taken.

She added, “Perhaps, the President may incline towards suspending the implementation of the 2014 Constitution, and entering into a referendum on the adoption of a new presidential system in the Tunisian political scene.”
