The Democratic Women’s Association rejects new draft constitution


The Democratic Women’s Association in Tunisia presented, during a press conference held in Tunis, a sociological human rights analysis of the new draft constitution submitted to referendum on July 25th. Activists in the association pointed out to several new, general concepts and expressions in the draft constitution that could risk the gains, rights and freedoms fought for by Tunisian civil society. They mentioned that the new draft constitution eliminates several bodies and institutions that guarantee collective and individual rights and freedoms. Head of The Democratic Women’s Association, Naila Al-Zoghlami, confirmed that the association will participate in protest movements against the draft constitution in the context of civil coalition with several civil organizations. She added that the association recently filed a complaint with the administrative court to halt the electoral process.
