Tunisian president OUSTS government, warns opponents that ‘army will respond with bullets’ if they try to unleash street violence

Tunisia’s president dismissed the government and froze parliament amid unrest over the “dysfunctional” political system and crumbling healthcare. His opponents decried the move as a “coup” and called for street protests.

Following an emergency meeting at his palace on Sunday night, President Kais Saied announced his decision to sack Prime Minister Hichem Mechichi and suspend the parliament. In a televised address, he promised to consolidate power and “save” the country with the help of a new prime minister.

We have taken these decisions... until social peace returns to Tunisia and until we save the state.
