While some political parties are falling behind in issuing their candidates’ lists for the elections of the Constituent Assembly, moderate Islamist party Ennahda has started the campaign period fast. Their first meeting was held in the covered hall in Nabeul, gathering 5,000 people. The party presented various heads of lists for the region.
After speeches given by Nabeul’s heads of lists, outlining Ennahda’s platform, party leader Rached Ghannouchi stepped in to back up the discourse. Mr. Ghannouchi talked about the importance of this period for the future of the country.
Most importantly, he underlined that Tunisians should not be afraid of Ennahda, stipulating, ”We must face this business of fear preached by some intruders.While we are confident in our means and we must all work together for the good of this nation.”
Mr. Ghanouchi added, “We do not live isolated. We are open to the world, tourism and culture of others.”
