Voting on a new constitution begins in Tunisia

Published

Voting has started in Tunisia on a new constitution that, if approved, could give the president more authority. Many of the current personal liberties enjoyed by Tunisians will continue to exist, though.

In accordance with the new charter, the president chooses the prime minister and other cabinet members based on the prime minister’s recommendation. This is a significant change from the current system, which gives parliament priority in choosing governments.

The president is responsible to the government, according to Article 112 of the proposed new constitution, and the president performs the executive function with the support of the government, according to Article 87.

The president has the authority to dissolve the government and any of its members under Article 102.

Other provisions limit the authority of the legislature and grant the president lifetime immunity.
