Tunis—The chairman of the Tunisia Constitutional Commission has blown up the constitution announced by President Kais Saied this week, the local Asabe newspaper reported on Sunday.
Former Constitutional professor Sadok Bereid was nominated by Sayed to draft a "new constitution for the New Republic," Sayed's version is dangerous and proposed by the Constitutional Commission. He said it was not similar to the first draft that was made.
Mr. Bereid said the president's final constitution contained chapters that could pave the way for a "disgraceful dictatorship."
The President has not commented on the Constitution since he published the text in the official Tunisia bulletin on Thursday. The Constitution gives Sayed much more power and will be put to a referendum next month. (Report by Tarek Amara; edited by David Gregorio)
