This first episode of inkytalk, published in two parts, looks back at July 25, 2021, a date that has already made history with the decision of the President of the Tunisian Republic, Kaïs Saied, to apply Article 80 of the Constitution, and to (temporarily?) assume full powers.

Eight days after this event, inkytalk's guests take a look at the genesis of this article during the 2014 Constituent Assembly, the potential abuses involved in having full powers, but also the abuses that have existed since 2011.

Malek Khadhraoui: Journalist and executive director of inkyfada

Monia Ben Hamadi: Journalist and editorial director of inkyfada

Emna Chebaane: Civil society actor, notably within Al Bawsala

Mahdi Elleuch: Legal Agenda researcher and activist

Tunisia - IMF : Strangled by debt

In October 2022, IMF staff and the Tunisian authorities have reached a staff-level agreement about 1.9 billion dollars that would be granted to Tunisia. The Tunisian government had asked for twice as much, while the socio-economic context of the country is increasingly complicated for citizens.


The Constitution of Kais Saied: What pleases the prince has the force of law

Kaïs Saied's draft of a new constitution reorganizes the entire political system: if his text is approved by the referendum of July 25, 2022, the President will have much greater powers than the legislative and judicial functions. Inkytalk looks at this system, which gives more power to the President and undermines the separation of powers.


One year after July 25: A constitutionalization of the exceptional

A few days before the national referendum called by the President, inkytalk looks back at the process undertaken by the President to ultimately propose such a constitutional text, the lack of a participatory approach, and the one-way communication in which he is involved to get his project through.
