On 14 December, President Kais Saied said that a referendum in Tunisia on constitutional reforms will take place on 25 July 2022, and parliamentary elections will be held in December 2022.
Protesters are rallying against Tunisian President Kais Saied and his decision to freeze parliament until elections are held in December 2022.
Earlier, Kais Said announced that Tunisia will hold a referendum in July 2022 on a new constitution. The president is a sharp critic of the existing constitution.
In late July, Saied dismissed Prime Minister Hicham Mechichi and suspended parliament for 30 days, following anti-government protests.
