The American power giant, General Electric, signed an ambiguous multimillion dollar contract with ex Tunisian President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, securing the establishment of energy turbines in Tunisia.

In 2002, Ben Ali closed a deal with GE that is valued at $152 million. The contract was for the placement of electric production turbines in three areas, namely: Tina, Feriana and La Goulette.

In doing so, the ousted president favored the American company over competitors and subsequently ignored all Tunisian laws in place against rewarding governmental contracts.

Generally, the law requires a transparent international call for different bidders looking to obtain a public contract with the government. The legislation in Tunisia stipulates that in the case of any important project, there should be consultation with the Supreme Committee for Public Projects. Accordingly, the committee has the right either to adopt or reject the project.

In this case, the role of the Supreme Committee for Public Projects was bypassed. The terms of the contract’s negotiation were not transparent due to Ben Ali’s personal intervention for the company.

    Objet : candidature pour le stage ” ingénieur ”
    Monsieur,
    J’ai l’honneur de vous adresser ma candidature pour le stage ” ingénieur “, et ce dans le cadre des travaux de mon projet de fin d’études. Intégrer l’une de vos équipes est un « challenge » qui me passionne et me motive au plus haut niveau. En effet, travailler au sein de vos équipes m’offre une occasion unique pour débuter ma carrière d’ingénieur dans un environnement stimulant jouissant de fortes connaissances tant sur le plan technique ainsi que relationnel.
    Actuellement, je suis élève ingénieur en 5ème année filière « Génie énergétique» à L’Ecole Nationale d’Ingénieurs de Monastir (ENIM) a Tunis. Motivé, sérieux et passionné par le travail sur terrain, j’ai un attrait particulier pour les postes à responsabilité. Ayant un sens aigu de l’organisation que j’ai cultivé dans le cadre de mes activités extra universitaires depuis plus de cinq ans, en assurant entre autres la tâche d’un chercheur au sein de la laboratoire de recherche à l’école , j’ai vraiment appris l’autonomie, la rigueur, et l’esprit d’initiative et de synthèse qui sont les vrais alliés de la réussite.
    Très intéressé par la maintenance, mon profil est susceptible de correspondre aux exigences de vos activités. C’est dans ce cadre encourageant que je me suis permis de vous adresser ma candidature.
    En attendant votre réponse, je vous prie d’agréer, madame, monsieur l’expression de mon profond respect.
    Ouhibi nizar
