Tunisian President Kais Saied accused parties - he did not name - of fabricating crises and paying money abroad to harm his country.

During his meeting with Prime Minister Najla Bouden - in the city of Sfax (west of the country) on Friday, Said said that many Tunisian administrations have turned into what he described as a focal point of spying and intelligence, calling for their purification, as he put it.

On July 25, Saied decided to dismiss Prime Minister Hisham al-Mashishi, freeze the parliament's competencies, and lift the immunity of parliamentarians, and later issued orders to dismiss officials and appoint others.

Most of the parties rejected Said's exceptional decisions, and some considered them a coup against the constitution, while other parties supported them, seeing them as a correction of the course in light of political, economic and health crises.


Saeed said that the reasons that prompted him to take exceptional measures were due to saving the state from collapse and achieving the will of the people, with full respect for the law, freedoms and human rights, as he put it.
