Tunisia Parties Call On President To Reverse Power-Grab

Four Tunisian political parties have demanded that President Kais Saied reverse his recent decision to expand his powers and rule by decree.

One of the four left-leaning factions warned that the president's actions risked a slide into violence or even civil war.

He was accused of having installed a one-man rule with a stroke of his pen.

President Saied began gathering almost all power into his own hands in July when he suspended parliament.

His opponents accuse him of carrying out a coup, but many Tunisians have supported Mr Saied.

They've been deeply disappointed by the performance of the country's political parties.
