Speaker of the Tunisian Parliament Rached Ghannouchi has given a lesson in democracy and ethics to his opponents, head of the Peace Society Movement in Algeria, Abderrazak Makri, said on Saturday.
In a post on Facebook, Makri talked about a session held by the Tunisian parliament on Wednesday that saw Ghannouchi accused of carrying out a “parallel diplomacy” for the state.
The head of the largest Islamic party in Algeria commented: “Rached Ghannouchi, who spent all his life struggling for liberties and democracy, gave a lesson to those who used to support totalitarianism, oppression and dictatorship in Tunisia, and they were part of it.”
“Ghannouchi gave them time to pass the condemnation list in the Parliament he heads. Then, he patiently endured 20 hours of insults and fake accusations, which, if one of them had addressed their former masters in Tunisia or in some Arab countries with, he/she would have been absent forever in prisons, or he/she might even be beheaded.”
According to Makri: “Sheikh Rached was patient. He gave his opponents a lesson in the morals of difference.”
