Statements by the Spokesperson

On Tuesday night the Assembly of the Representatives of the People of the Republic of Tunisia gave its vote of confidence to the government presented by the designated Head of Government, Hichem Mechichi. We congratulate the new Tunisian government and hope that this development will ensure the political stability that the country needs in order to address its socio-economic challenges, which have been exacerbated by the coronavirus pandemic.

The European Union recalls its privileged partnership with Tunisia and reiterates its willingness to work closely with the new government towards the country’s sustainable development, and in particular in support of the reform process for the benefit of the Tunisian people.
