The European Union has called on Tunisian President Kais Saied to restore democratic order in the country and reopen Parliament.
Mr Saied suspended Parliament in July and fired the Prime Minister in what his opponents said was a coup.
He however enjoys the support of many Tunisians.
EU Foreign Policy Chief Joseph Borrell told EU lawmakers during a parliamentary session that the Tunisian Parliament “cannot stay closed indefinitely.”
Borrell urged the Tunisian President to set a clear timetable for the reopening of the Legislature.
“It is crucial for the future of the country and for its domestic and international credibility that the president and the Tunisian authorities at all levels fully restore the constitutional and institutional order, including the activities of the parliament,” he said.
Last week, Prime Minister Najla Bouden, whom Mr Saied appointed last month, announced a new cabinet –which has 10 women, including the PM.
