According to one of Kais Saied's supporters, "[National] consultation is essential to democracy and is a cornerstone of the Project".
This role of the national consultation is not simply a passing occurence or an attempt to understand the views of the population, but rather a basic component in the development of his state project, just like the new Constitution and political system that the President seeks to establish.
However, some of Saied's supporters highlight the fact that participation in national consultation cannot be compulsory, thus indicating that although it is a mechanism of direct democracy, its outcome does not necessitate the implementation of neither the process nor its results.
In the third episode of "At the heart of the Project", you will hear what Kais Saied's most active supporters think about online national consultation: discussing how it is presented, its results and its significance.
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.
