Tunisia prepares for referendum to amend constitution


Tunisia is preparing to hold a national referendum on a new constitution on July 25 despite opposition’s calls to reverse the controversial move. The Independent Electoral Commission began preparations for voter lists and other logistic issues. The commission head, Farouk Bouaskar, said they are working to ensure regular, democratic, and fair polling. Earlier, Tunisian President Kais Saied issued a decree to call voters to a referendum provided that the new draft constitution be published no later than June 30.
