Opponents of Tunisia's President Kais Saied take part in a protest against what they call his coup on July 25, in Tunis, Tunisia September 18, 2021. REUTERS/Zoubeir SouissiTUNIS, Sept 18 (Reuters) - Several hundred demonstrators gathered in Tunis on Saturday to protest against Tunisian President Kais Saied's seizure of governing powers in July, which triggered a constitutional crisis and prompted accusations of a coup. The protest, accompanied by a heavy police presence, was the first since Saied declared on July 25 he was sacking the prime minister, suspending parliament and assuming executive authority. Meanwhile, with their immunity lifted, some parliamentarians have been arrested, while numerous Tunisians have been stopped from leaving the country. "They are only here to ... protect corrupt people and Islamists," said Mohamed Slim, standing with his son in the counter protest.

REUTERS/Zoubeir Souiss/File PhotoTUNIS, Sept 10 (Reuters) - Some prominent Tunisian politicians on Friday came out against the president suspending or changing the constitution, as one of his advisers has said he is planning after seizing ruling powers in July. Saied has no right to change the political system from outside the constitution, said the Ennahda official Abdel-Latif El-Makki, a former government minister.

European Union Foreign Policy Chief Josep Borrell meets with Tunisia's President Kais Saied during his visit to Tunis, Tunisia September 10, 2021. Tunisian Presidency/Handout via REUTERSTUNIS, Sept 10 (Reuters) - Tunisian President Kais Saied on Friday said the country would not tolerate any foreign interference as he faces rising pressure from Western governments to restore constitutional order after seizing power in July. Visiting Tunis on Friday, EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said he conveyed European concerns about preserving democratic gains in Tunisia to Saied. Saied's intervention has thrust Tunisia into a constitutional crisis, raising concerns over the future of the democratic system. Saied said his intervention was in line with the constitution and necessitated by a national emergency due to political paralysis, high COVID-19 rates and protests.

Tunisian President Kais Saied takes the oath of office in Tunis, Tunisia, October 23, 2019. REUTERS/Zoubeir Souiss/File PhotoTUNIS, Sept 9 (Reuters) - Tunisian President Kais Saied plans to suspend the constitution and may amend the political system via a referendum, one of his advisers told Reuters on Thursday in the first clear indication of his plans after moves his critics have called a coup. "This system cannot continue ... changing the system means changing the constitution through a referendum, perhaps ... the referendum requires logistical preparation," said Walid Hajjem, an adviser to Saied. However, arrests of parliament members after Saied lifted their immunity and numerous travel bans against prominent people have alarmed some rights advocates. Tunisia's powerful labour union, the UGTT, has also urged him to appoint a government and start dialogue to change the political system.

The talks follow earlier efforts by Turkey to ease tensions with UAE allies Saudi Arabia and Egypt, with a delegation from Cairo due in Ankara on Tuesday. "The cost of strained ties is not sustainable in the region when it comes to Turkey, the UAE and Saudi Arabia," a second Turkish official said, speaking on condition of anonymity. Unlike Saudi Arabia, which maintains an unofficial boycott of Turkish exports, the UAE says it remains Turkey's largest regional trading partner. "For Saudi Arabia and the UAE this is not the priority file that it used to be," said Galip Dalay, a fellow at the Robert Bosch Academy in Berlin. Turkey still blocks access to the websites of some UAE organisations, including the state news agency, but the government has halted what was once a regular barrage of criticism directed at the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Egypt.

WASHINGTON — The U.S. says it will remain intimately engaged in diplomacy in Afghanistan on topics from counterterrorism and humanitarian aid to women’s rights — all without having a single diplomat posted there. A new diplomatic mission has begun.”President Joe Biden took the idea even further in remarks Tuesday, laying out an expansive set of economic, security and human rights goals for U.S. diplomacy in Afghanistan. Bodde said he managed to get into Libya three or four times for quick rounds of shuttle diplomacy. It will be led by Ian McCary, who had been the deputy chief of mission in Afghanistan, the second-ranking U.S. diplomat in the country. “One will be maintaining channels to Taliban representatives in Doha.”Despite Doha’s significant distance from Kabul, Qatar is a natural pick for the remote U.S. mission.

(CNN) Afghanistan may not be part of the Middle East but its geopolitical fate has for decades been inextricably linked to that of the nearby region. In 2001, the fall of the Taliban was the first major milestone in America's so-called "war on terror" that ultimately transformed both the country and the Middle East. For the Middle East, this changes everything. There are two main schools of thought about a post-American Middle East. As uncertainty abounds and the Middle East becomes crippled by diminishing resources, Shabani predicts that the region's many autocrats will double down, and that unrest will worsen.

German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer, whose country took in the bulk of the new arrivals since 2015, said all member countries should play their part. POLITICISED ISSUEThe EU has half a billion people, and needs immigrants to sustain its ageing population as birth rates decline. But the irregular arrivals of 2015-16 stretched social and security systems, fed anti-immigrant sentiment and triggered feuds between member countries on how to provide for them. It indicated the bloc would pledge to step up humanitarian aid to Afghanistan, including via the UNHCR, but gave no specifics. The EU hosts a 10th of the world's refugees, equivalent to about 0.6% of the bloc's total population.

REUTERS/Zoubeir SouissiTUNIS, Aug 30 (Reuters) - Five weeks after their president seized governing powers and a week after he indefinitely prolonged emergency measures, Tunisians are increasingly puzzled at his silence on the biggest crisis of their democratic era. Both ordinary Tunisians and the political class widely expect him to change the constitution to give the presidency more powers after he suspended parliament. Both the government he ousted and the suspended parliament were very unpopular, while his vocal attacks on corruption and high prices have popular support, making it harder for his critics to oppose him.

TUNIS, Aug 26 (Reuters) - Tunisia has stopped at least 50 officials, politicians and businessmen from travelling abroad since the president seized governing powers last month, Amnesty International said on Thursday. "President Kais Saied has made widespread use of arbitrary travel bans in Tunisia while bypassing the judiciary," it said, adding that the total number of people affected was likely "far greater" than the 50 cases it documented. However, authorities have detained or put under house arrest several officials and politicians, while border police have prevented others from travelling, raising fears for the rights won in 2011. Saied has also sacked some security officials and figures in central and regional government, while police have detained people they say were involved in corruption in the phosphate industry.
