Tunisia is undergoing a deep crisis at all levels. The political crisis is the main indication of the post-revolution situation in Tunisia, where multiple governments and every government action permeate the features of a narrow-minded partisan conflict, which revolves around the interest, the stakes of governance and political positioning. Because of the poor performance of political parties, whether in the government or the opposition, and the continuous reliance on calming things down through what has been called adulterated compromise based on interest and narrow partisan quotas. New personalities and political blocs have entered the political scene, and today they are at the forefront, as a result of the punishment of the Tunisian people for the political elite through punitive voting in the last presidential and parliamentary elections. This crisis has brought back the residue and rhetoric of the old regime. They all bears the responsibility for the disruption of the transition ath, at a time when all reform and anti-corruption programs have ended up to become pressure and negotiation files only when needed, and not through real political belief and will.
The political discourse in the People’s Assembly, which has become subject to dependence on strength, verbal and moral violence, and also noticeable from the users of this discourse, targeting women, has declined. While some sit-in in its building, others try to take over its podium, in a surreal scene that insults the establishment of the representatives of the people and the Tunisian people themselves. Rather, it was noted that the doors of the Council were closed to journalists and civil society activists, by the administration of specific political parties from the ruling coalition.
The Tunisian people are waiting for the entire political class, without exception, to focus on the issues of founding the real democratic institutions capable of ending the transition and launching political, social and economic development projects, but every time the people is faced with ignorance towards his problems and the manipulation of their hardships. Legislative initiatives have also emerged that threaten freedom of expression, the media, and the press, coinciding with hate speech, atonement, and contempt for women, and even to incitement to violence and murder.
Meanwhile, government action has become a locus of political positioning struggles for the largest parties. He continued for a period of 5 months thanks to a health crisis greater than the political crisis itself, but with its passage, it returned stronger, and ended in the resignation of the government of Elias Al-Fakhfakh. Rights and freedoms also face a punitive and restraining policy, which resulted in the blog Amna Al Sharqi going to prison, in parallel with the spread of the letter of atonement and the threat of death, liquidation and assault with violence in the virtual space.

The political discourse on development, fighting corruption and preserving the revolution’s gains lost its credibility, which led to the adoption by part of public opinion and politicians of radical anti-democratic positions or in line with the old regime and its remains that are further identifying with populism. This calls on those who support the choices of the Tunisian people to refrain from political alignment and to preserve the compass of the constitution, law, and revolution. And that is for one and clear reason, which is that these parties cannot provide the conditions for a democratic system and the conditions for maintaining the transition to democracy or the failure to employ its outputs.
On this basis, Democratic Transition and Human Rights Support Centre (DAAM) calls for:
Hence, DAAM Centre considers all Parties responsible for the threat to the democratic transition and the fragility of the economic and social situation.
