Tunisia's Ennahda National Youth Movement on Sunday urged the movement's leader, Rached Ghannouchi, to form a national leadership including youth to save the political track of the country, Anadolu Agency reported.

The call came a week after President Kais Saied dismissed Prime Minister Hichem Mechichi, removed the immunity of all parliamentarians and froze Parliament.

The movement described Saied's decisions in a statement as "unconstitutional" and called to form a national salvation leadership that would renew the executive leadership within the party and save the country's political path.

"This is the demand of most of the movement's youth, regardless of their orientations, whose views the National Youth Movement has united," the statement announced.

The movement urged Ghannouchi to initiate a dialogue with the president and make the necessary compromises for the sake of the nation's interests.
