Tunisian leader to allow public views on reforms
The Tunisian president has said everyone will have a chance to comment on his proposals for political reform.
Kais Saied – who suspended parliament and seized executive power last year – was speaking on state television.
He said he would hold a referendum on constitutional change in July.
Mr Saied’s comments came after thousands of people protested in Tunis on Sunday, some shouting “bring down the president”.
Critics say the president is acting to bolster his own authority and wants to restrict civil liberties gained in the Arab Spring revolt of 2011.
He has said the reforms will help end years of government paralysis and weak economic growth in Tunisia.
