The Congress for the Republic (CPR) party secretary general and adviser to the President of the Republic, Mohamed Abbou, and a member of the party’s political bureau, Mohamed Aziz Krichen, both asserted that the CPR “will leave the ruling Troika if an agreement is not reached on the reform of the governmental action and the manner to settle issues in the country,” reported TAP on Saturday, December 8.

CPR has established conditions under which its members say that it will not quit the ruling Troika coalition – shared with the Ennahdha and Ettakatol parties.

“The conditions to remain in the government are the following: filling vacancies in some ministries, such as the Ministry of Finance, and accelerating the opening of corruption files,” said Samia Abbou, a National Constituent Assembly (NCA) member affiliated with CPR.

The announcement by CPR’s secretary general was met with skepticism by other members in the NCA.

“The CPR party has reached a deadlock after realizing that it has lost the trust of people. The party understands now that it has turned into an ornament used to decorate the government and employed as a subordinate whose role is… not to serve the people’s needs,” claimed Nasser Ibrahimi, a NCA member belonging to Al-Wafa party and former member of CPR.

He continued, “Abbou takes this decision because he is afraid that his party loses further people’s support during the election. It is a political tactic to restore the trust of people who recently no longer believe in such party.”

“The conditions set by CPR are in fact ours. We were the first, who called to accelerate the opening of corruption files, and it is for this reason that we left CPR when it failed to face up to Ennahdha,” explained Ibrahmi.

Mohamed Abbou was not available for comment at the time of publication.
