Ennahdha published, in the evening of Friday, October 7, 2022, a press release in which it addressed several points; The boycott of the legislative elections of December 2022 and its position on the electoral code developed by the President of the Republic, Kaïs Saïed.
Rached Ghannouchi’s party repeated its boycott of the expected legislative elections.
Ennahdha likewise returned to the provisions of the new electoral code arguing that the text confirmed its worries and warnings. It indicated, in this sense, that the new electoral law – by the adoption of the uninominal election – confused the principle of equity and equal chances between citizens and excluded the parties in the elections which would give birth, in its sense to a parliamentary landscape scattered and unstable, not to mention the peril of devoting the claim and the influence of the corruption lobbies.
The Islamist movement has also denounced the numerous violations of human rights and freedom of expression perpetrated against journalists as well as the defamation campaigns directed against the elected officials of the people and judges, among others. In this context, it recalled the decision of the African Court of Human and People (Cadhp) against Decree 117 of Kaïs Saïed.
Ennahdha also called, the country’s living forces to tighten ranks in the face of “coup d’etat” by multiplying peaceful protests against power which “altered political life and changed the economic crisis into a disaster threatening the means subsistence of the people ”.
