Tunisia: Our post-revolutionary struggle

Yahyaoui, Amira
December 2012
New African;Dec2012, Issue 523, p70
The author discusses the struggle of the National Constituent Assembly to form a genuine democracy for Tunisia. She states that the constitution is being written with no input from the citizens and the National Constituent Assembly is a bunker where very little information exists. She mentions that the results of votes are never released, reports from the commission are never made public, and a person must be accompanied by an elected member or invited to enter the Constituent Assembly.
