Souad Abderrahim: President of the Constituent Assembly?

Rumors have circulated about Ennahda nominating Souad Abderrahim as the President of the Constituent Assembly. However, when Tunisia Live asked Abderrahim to comment on the subject, she replied, “These are rumors that the media has spread, and this is not true.  There have been no official talks about it.”

Abderrahim also declared that Ennahda has no problem with assigning women to powerful positions, and that women, for them, are the mothers, the sisters, the wives, and the daughters who stood by the party members and supported them while they were being tortured and imprisoned.

Souad continued,”Ennahda is very open, and when nominating an independent woman, the party is trying to reassure Tunisians that they are committed to preserving women’s rights and freedoms.” She added that women should not be afraid of Ennahda.  “The proof is that they nominated me as a head of a list,” she asserted.
