    NCA President Mustapha Ben Jaafar

    The president of the National Constituent Assembly (NCA), Mustapha Ben Jafaar, was in Venice today to discuss the drafting of Tunisia’s constitution with the European Commission for Democracy through Law, better known as the Venice Commission.

    The commission, an advisory board of the Council of Europe comprising leading experts in constitutional law, meets four times a year in Venice’s Scuola Grande di San Giovanni Evangelista to assist and advise on constitutional matters.

    The commission of Venice invited Ben Jaafar to understand the drafting process in Tunisia and to learn about Tunisia’s progress in its transition toward democracy.

    “The commission recognized Tunisia’s gains and believes that the Tunisian experience is very unique and serves as the model and the pioneer in the process of establishing democracy in relation to other Arab countries that underwent a revolution so far,” Ben Jaafar told Tunisia Live.

    He continued, “The commission supported the efforts made to draft the constitution and they believe we will influence positively the other Arab countries that have underwent a revolution.”
