Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Tunisia: Thousands rally in support of President Saied” – below is their description.

Thousands of supporters of Tunisian President Kais Saied have rallied in the capital to show their backing for his suspension of parliament and promises to change the political system, acts his critics call a coup.

The demonstration in central Tunis was called in response to protests against Saied’s actions over the previous two weekends in the same location.

The opposition has accused Saied of carrying out a coup after suspending parliament in July and announcing his plans to rule by decree.
