“The situation is obscure and the nation is heading towards a more complex crisis because it is confronting the threat of unemployment, rising prices and poverty”, he said.
Chebbi deemed that the civil and national political forces need to rise to the challenge and gather their words to give a vision and a way out of the crisis. He likewise considered that the President of the Republic, Kais Saied is the source of the crisis and does not desire to be part of the solution, because he proceeds to monopolize his opinion and to take illegitimate and illegal decisions. Consequently, we have to prevent it and deal with what is occurring and “it takes boldness” according to Chebbi. “It is the Tunisians who will pay the price for the coup,” he concluded.
