Both at home and abroad, Kais Saied is—more than ever—alone. Well before his scandalous remarks concerning sub-Saharan migrants, he had already erected the walls and forged the bars of the cell that he occupies today. And with his isolation, Tunisia is condemned to devastating paralysis.
President Saied’s draft of the Constitution: Falsehood and misperception
After a fake coup d’état that was justified by its supposed constitutionality, a fake national consultation which failed to mobilize even a fourth of his voters in 2019, a fake national dialogue which merely featured a chorus of yes-men, Kais Saied has made haste to hatch out a fake constitution.

«Operation Carthage»: Nabil Karoui and lobbyist Lotfi Bel Hadj busted by Facebook
« Disinformation as a service » is how the Atlantic Council described the services provided by Tunisian digital communication agency UReputation to presidential candidate Nabil Karoui during his campaign for Tunisia’s 2019 presidential elections.

Investigation: UPS Tunisia to the rescue of Nidaa Tounes
Having endured multiple scissions since coming to power at the end of 2014, Nidaa Tounes is all but in pieces.

To this end, a na-tional conference of regional coordinators was held in Mahdia over the weekend of December 21-23, 2018. The event is telling about the banalization of murky relations between the business world and Nidaa Tounes, whose own treasurer is playing the role of party financer.

Seif Trabelsi sur El Hiwar Ettounsi Tv : Un rebranding pour une famille mafieuse (2)
Et voilà qu’El Hiwar Ettounsi Tv récidive. Après le numéro de « Liman Yajroô faqat » du 22 février (lire notre article), l’émission de divertissement « Labes » a invité, dans la soirée de samedi dernier, Seif Trabelsi.

Leurres, copinage et arrangements.
