Contrary to rumors, opposition party Nidaa Tounes will not sue the ruling Ennahdha party for recent attacks on its headquarters in different regions of the country for the time being, confirmed Bochra Belhaj Hmida a lawyer, a member in Nidaa Tounes’ executive bureau.

“The party’s members would rather not resort to the judiciary to find a suitable solution for this problem. The judicial branch would be the last solution for Nidaa Tounes as it prefers to solve the issue politically,” explained Belhaj Hmida.

“The party is sticking to its main demand, which is the dissolution of the National League for the Protection of the Revolution, which is suspected to be the organizer of the attacks,” she added.

The league is an unofficial network that supports Ennahdha and has come in conflict with Nidaa Tounes before. On October 18, 2012, Lotfi Naguedh, a local Nidaa Tounes coordinator, died after a protest by the league became violent.

Lazhar Akremi, a founding member of Nidaa Tounes, told Tunisia Live that while there is no lawsuit against Ennahdha, a legal team is currently investigating several attacks that either Nidaa Tounes members or their party headquarters have experienced in Sfax, Djerba, Tataouine, and Menzel Bouzelfa.

The most publicized of all the attacks has been the one in Djerba, which took place on December 22. Nidaa Tounes claimed that the assault on a party meeting in Djerba was premeditated and orchestrated by militias, supported by Ennahdha and the Congress for the Republic party, reported state news agency TAP.
