Ennahda threatens to topple Fakhfakh government: Tunisia

Ennahda movement waved the toppling of the government of Prime Minister-designate Elias Al-Fakhfakh, who is preparing to present its squad this evening to President Qais Saeed, in the event that he did not review and make amendments to it, in a move aimed at pressuring the traps to expand its government representation and involve the “Heart of Tunisia” party. In this government. 

The head of the Shura Council, Al-Nahdha Movement, Abdel Karim Al-Harouni, told a press conference that the government proposed by Elias Al-Fakhakh “cannot have the confidence of Al-Nahda,” justifying that the squad he presented “has no chances to succeed and will be doomed to failure.”

Al-Harouni called the traps to wait and not present his government’s composition this evening to President Qais Saeed, and to continue negotiating until the government gets the confidence of Parliament, hinting in this context that the government can fall, and that means dissolving parliament and going to new parliamentary elections, stressing that Ennahdha is not afraid This scenario.

The same spokesman asserted that his party adhered to the option of a national unity government that did not exclude any party, including the “Heart of Tunisia” party, noting that “in the event that Elias Al-Fakhfakh did not respond to the request of Ennahda, the Shura Council is in permanent session, and will decide whether to grant confidence or not.” “.

5 ministerial bags

The “Renaissance Movement” in this government obtained 5 ministerial portfolios, as it has the majority in Parliament, which is the Ministry of Local Government Affairs, Basma al-Jabali, the Ministry of Health for Abd al-Latif al-Makki, the Ministry of Higher Education, Khalil al-Amayri, the Ministry of Youth and Sports by Ahmed Qaloul, and the Ministry of Energy for Manji Marzouq, but it is It still aspires to expand its share in the government and impose the personalities that it proposed to assume the ministerial portfolios, as Al-Harouni considered that “the offer made by the traps to his party is not required.”

Observers ruled out the possibility of Al-Nahdha risking the dissolution of Parliament and the re-election, considering that its threat not to give confidence to the Powers government is a political maneuver to impose its conditions and enable it from the largest possible number of ministerial portfolios.

In this context, political analyst Abd al-Rahman Zaghlami believes that the renaissance, as the first bloc in parliament, “will not risk the toppling of the government of the traps and going to new parliamentary elections, especially that its leader Rashid Ghannouchi is the speaker of parliament,” considering that this position “will not risk Ghannouchi to miss In it, it is allowed to repeat the elections, especially since the movement declined its popularity according to the latest polls after it became clear to the Tunisians that it did not offer anything for 9 years.

On the other hand, Zghalami added to our reporters that Al-Nahda will have to pass the government to prevent the continuation of Yusuf al-Shahid in the presidency of the government for other months. He pointed out that Al-Nahda seeks through the obstacles that it put in front of the traps to strengthen its position in the political scene and limit the influence of President Qais Said, whose imprint is evident in the formation of the government, whether by entrusting Elias El-Fakhfakh with this task, or by excluding the Heart of Tunisia party from the consultations.

Zaghalami expects the traps to ignore the pressures and blackmail of Ennahdha and not accept its dictates, and head this evening to the Carthage Palace to present the government formation to President Qais Saeed before she passes to Parliament to give her confidence.

The proposed government needs to vote 109 deputies in parliament to gain confidence and carry out its tasks, and the traps depend on the political belt that comprises the government, which is the Renaissance Movement (54 deputies), the Democratic Movement (22 deputies), the People’s Movement (15 deputies), and the Dignity Coalition (18 Representatives), and the Movement of Long Live Tunisia (14 deputies), as well as support for other small, independent parties.
