Tunisia’s Human Rights League urges Prime Minister to resign

Tunisia’s Human rights League, LTDH, Thursday called on Prime Minister Hichem Mechichi to step down few hours after a meeting between the two sides.

 

The call came in a statement issued by the organization without providing reasons for its call.

 

Mechichi hours before the statement, received an LTDH delegation to discuss the state of human rights in the North African country.

The LTDH also called on Mechichi to pardon all youths arrested and put on trial following recent riots.

 

Mechichi, sworn in as Prime Minister in July, is under pressure and has seen his position threatened in recent months amid open conflict with President Kais Saied.

 

Saied has accused the former interior minister of violating the constitution after he failed to consult him prior to January cabinet shake-up.
