Tunisia’s union and two political parties have rejected an invitation by a U.S congressional delegation to discuss the country’s political crisis, saying they refuse any foreign interference in local crisis.
The visit by U.S. Senator Chris Murphy led congressional delegation on Saturday comes after President Kais Saied’s seizure of governing powers in July critics called a coup.
Sami Tahri, the spokesman of UGTT union says Tunisian affair should be resolved only among Tunisians adding that UGTT did not accept the bullying of foreigners in the time of former President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, and “will not accept it today and tomorrow.”
The Free Constitutional party and Achaab party close to Saied also said that there is no way they will accept any interference in local crisis.
The U.S. delegation, which will visit Tunisia as part of a regional visit that included Lebanon, Israel and the West Bank, will discuss with officials and politicians the crisis in Tunisia.
