Researchers: new draft constitution ineffective in representing public will


The Legal Agenda organization, specialized in research and analysis of law, presented a new study it started conducting a while ago entitled ‘The President Wants: Contradictions and Risks of the Basic Structure System’. The study conducted by political scientists and law professors discussed the draft of the new political system that Tunisian President Kais Saied, is trying to highlight through the constitution draft, put to a referendum on July 25th. Researchers and law professors stressed the contradiction between the principle of rooting democracy, and the fact of complete disengagement of authoritative bodies. They added that the new draft constitution is ineffective in representing public will because it concentrates power on only the President and creates a presidential system that weakens and disperses any force that could monitor and balance out this centralization.
