Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Could Tunisia fall under a new dictatorship? | Inside Story” – below is their description.
Tunisia is often called the only success story of the Arab Spring.
But ten years on, its democracy is looking fragile.
President Kais Saied has defended sacking the Prime Minister and suspending parliament, saying he acted lawfully under the constitution.
Tunisia’s biggest political party, Ennahda, is calling for a national dialogue.
While some celebrated the President’s decisions, others are warning of a return to authoritarianism.
So could Tunisia return to dictatorship?
