Tunisian Prime Minister-designate Elias El-Fakhfakh confirmed on Friday that his consultations with political parties are continuing in order to form a "broad" political belt, excluding the participation of the "Heart of Tunisia" and the "Free Constitutional Party" from his prospective ministerial team.
Al-Fakhfakh said in his first press conference since his appointment that he was keen on "expanding the political belt of the prospective government" to enjoy "wide and solid confidence from the parliament."
And Al-Fakhfakh added that the "political coalition" will support the government ... without a tactic "because, according to him," the economic and social situation does not wait. "
Fakhfakh excluded from his consultations both the second party in terms of the arrangement of the parliamentary blocs “The Heart of Tunisia” (38 deputies out of 217) and the “Free Constitutional Party” (17 deputies) and explained its decision to “not in the path of the people and the path of what the people demand” and that “it must Create political stability to achieve the social transition that has been long awaited by the people. ”
The head of the Free Constitutional Party, Abeer Moussa, the "Renaissance" party is considered a branch of the "Brotherhood" organization and holds him responsible for the spread of "terrorism" in the country, and often her interventions in the charged parliament end up adjourning the sessions.
Nabil Karoui, the head of the “Heart of Tunisia” party who was defeated by the incumbent Qais Said in the presidential elections on October 13, is still a judicial follower in cases of tax evasion.
The consultations of the Fathakh (47 years) begin with the political parties on social and economic programs next week before passing to the stage of forming the ministerial team, which will include within the limits of 25 ministers.
In order for the prospective traps government to gain the confidence of Parliament, it must obtain the votes of 109 out of 217 deputies, of whom the Parliament is formed. This task seems very difficult in light of the current parliament emerging from last October's elections.
And if the traps fail to form a government that won the confidence of the parliament, then the Tunisians will have no choice but to return to the polls to elect a new parliament, which will further delay the awaited reforms to revive the economy.
