Page 3: An approach to the future of the political system after the revolution
A conference on future political system(s) for Tunisia was organized yesterday by the Tunisian Network for rights, freedom and dignity and many experts took part in this. Sadok Belaid, a Professor in constitutional law said that, “we have to learn from our past in order to implement a political system that will be able to respond to the aspirations of the Tunisian people”. He emphasized on the need to implement a true democracy based on justice, solidarity and human rights. Amor Sahabou from of the Tunisian reform movement declared that Tunisians have a natural repulsion towards Presidential system due to suffering from the old regime. He also insisted on the educational roles of the current political leaders in the Presidential system, saying it could be good for Tunisia in case it is implemented properly. Sahabou however, warned against the weaknesses of the parliamentary system and its absence of a strong majority. Hammam Hammami from the communist party, opted for the parliamentary system as Tunisia suffered from the presidential system and citied the examples of Italy, Greece and Germany as countries who also used this system in their transitions.
Ali Laaridh from the Ennahdha party said that his party has adopted modernity without disconnection from the past. He said that Ennahdha is for womens participation in public life and an economy free enough to help the democracy prosper. He announced that Ennahdha is for a strong parliament and for a president with prerogatives.

Tahar Mansouri is a renown historian that was interviewed about the revolution and the current Tunisian political situation. He declared that what we observe today is due to two main behaviors: selfishness & frustration. We could compare it to a bright light coming to the eyes of people living in the darkness for a long time, It hurts in the beginning but the adjustment happens quickly. He also said that he is in favor of delaying the elections as the new parties are not having enough time to promote themselves. On a negative note, he expressed some of his fears about the Ennahdha party. He feels that this party monopolizes the Islamic religion and acts as if all the other members of society are non-believers.

Page 4: There is no fear for Tunisia concerning the foreign debt
Some Tunisians have expressed fears about foreign debt and how it might impact national decision making process. Economy expert Ridha Gouiaa was interviewed on this topic and declared that we need to take loans to improve the infrastructure, investors’ and entrepreneurship environment. We need foreign investors to revive the under-privileged areas and create an economy that will give value to local ressources. Foreign debt will also help Tunisia aim for an economy with high added value that includes electronics and information technology. Foreign debt is not a threat to Tunisia as our capacity to pay back is strong and we benefit from a momentum on the international level.
