Tunisian National Constituent Assembly

The National Constituent Assembly (NCA) will begin weekly talks with civil society representatives concerning the constitution in six of Tunisia’s governorates starting this Sunday, December 23.

“The dialogue with civil society aims to enhance citizens’ participation in the debate on the constitution, build permanent contacts between the [NCA] and the community, and create forums of dialogue on issues of concern to the public opinion,” reads a communiqué from the NCA.

The weekly meetings will take place in the cities of Kairouan, Sfax, Monastir, Sousse, Mahdia, and Gabes.

“This initiative looks to involve competent members from these regions in the drafting of the constitution and introduce their suggestions,” said Najib Mrad, a NCA member affiliated with the ruling Ennahdha party. He added that the meetings will be open to a total of 300 civil society representatives.

The initiative is undertaken in partnership with the United Nations Development Programme.
