"The main bond is love", Ziad Abdouli, one of the main supporters of Kais Saied in Sidi Bouzid.
The "project initiators" insist that what unites them is a bond of love and a mutual desire to improve the daily lives of Tunisians by establishing a new relationship between citizens and officials. Thus, their commitment to Kais Saied was based on volunteering, irrespective of any personal gain.
However, it seems that their reluctance to accept official positions suddenly vanished after July 25, when they instead became a candidate pool for various appointments made by the President, who, they claim, was convinced that "[they were] the most reliable means to achieve the Project", following what they called 'El-Mechichi's betrayal'.
In the second episode of our podcast "At the heart of the Political Project", we will learn more about these figures and the nature of their involvement, the roles they play in the appointment process, as well as their responses to the criticisms directed at Kais Saied after July 25.
Inkyfada Podcast is the first platform entirely dedicated to original Tunisian podcasts, and was conceived by Inkyfada media in collaboration with the in-house research and development laboratory, InkyLab. Inkyfada joined the global podcast boom in 2017, when the team produced the first Tunisian audio documentary, diving deep into the belly of the El Kamour struggle taking place in the desert. Since then, Inkyfada Podcast has produced a wide variety of documentaries, investigations, and podcast series, as well as articles accompanied by music; covering a multitude of contemporary issues in order to offer an immersive and alternative podcast experience. Whilst exclusively offering audio content, the Inkyfada Podcast team upholds the same core values and principles of inkyfada.com, and is committed to producing high quality content though a dynamic and meticulous production process. In addition to the permanent team, Inkyfada podcast works closely with various journalists, artists, illustrators, musicians and other content creators in order to diversify the platform and support artistic creativity. These podcasts differ from traditional radiophonic content in that the applied production and editing process is more akin to cinematographic techniques, in addition to being web-based, downloadable and accessible on demand. Additionally, Inkyfada Podcast uniquely offers subtitles in French, Arabic and English for all audio content, the majority of which is recorded in Tunisian or in the preferred language of the speaker in question.
