Ennahda calls for respecting people's rights and freedoms

Tunisia's Ennahda movement has called for respecting the principles of the Constitution with regard to rights and freedom as important gains of 2011's revolution that overthrew Zine El-Abidine Ben Ali's regime.

This came in a statement issued by the movement's Shura Council yesterday, a copy of which was made available to the Anadolu Agency.

The council met in its 37th round from 1-3 May in Hammamat, eastern Tunisia, to discuss several issues related to the general situation in the country as well as the movement's preparations for its tenth extraordinary conference, which will be held in the second half of this year.

The statement stressed "the need to respect the Constitution's principles and provisions relating to rights and freedoms as one of the revolution's gains for which many were martyred." It called on the Tunisian Parliament, the People's Assembly, to review all laws and draft laws that could affect any aspect of Tunisians' freedoms.
