Tunisia-Chris Murphy:Tunisia continues its plunge into authoritarianism

U.S. Senator Chris Murphy Chairman of the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee on Near East, South Asia, Central Asia and Counterterrorism, on Tuesday released the following statement:

“It’s becoming impossible to believe President Saied’s claims that he is committed to transitioning his country back to democracy,” said Murphy. “His latest move to obliterate the Supreme Judicial Council suggests Tunisia continues its plunge into authoritarianism. President Saied has pledged to turn around his country’s economy and root out corruption – admirable goals that the Tunisian people have long demanded. But he cannot successfully do that without the international community’s financial support, and we need to make clear that support is linked to a democratic course correction.”
