Tunisia- The opposing elites disapproved of Saied’s referendum and accused the president of electoral manipulation.
On Tuesday, the National Salvation Front, a coalition of opposition parties in Tunisia, accused the electoral commission of "falsifying" the turnout results in the constitutional referendum, claiming that President Kais Saied's referendum "has failed."
The National Salvation Front was formed as an initiative by the opposition to retreat from protests. The opposition elites Kais Saied’s policy as “a coup against the constitution of Najib El Chebbi, the head of the political committee Al-Amal Party, told a press conference that the primary purpose of the National Salvation Front was to call for a national dialogue conference and to encourage all political parties to work together in a quest to support“ a transitional government for salvation.”
He added that president Kais Saied’s policy did not provide any solution to the current crisis in Tunisia. , But he claimed that the president “ has complicated things even further.”
"One result of those decisions has been an external blockade on Tunisia, which has intensified the economic and social crisis in particular." He said.
According to the Tunisian Independent Higher Election Authority (ISIE), 27 per cent of people participated on Tuesday evening, knowing that there were 9.3 million registered voters.
The percentage received a massive backlash from the opposition as they claimed it to be false.
“The numbers that out by the electoral organization are inflated, and we do not agree with what was observed by everyone as an electoral fraud.” Said Najib El Chebbi.
Chebbi insisted that the only reference to legitimacy in the country since the revolution in the 2014 constitution. “Saied should resign, so that presidential and legislative stability prevail.”
He then asserted that the low turnout of the referendum participation proved the failure of Kais Saied’s coup.
The Islamic political party Elnnahda has announced that the low turnout of 75 per cent of those registered on the electoral roll for the referendum on Kais Saied’s drafted constitution “ is stark evidence that his constitution is widely rejected and is completely null.”
