At the heart of the Project

Kais Saied's landslide victory in the 2019 presidential elections warrants a closer look at the causes, contributors, and subsequent consequences. Throughout the four episodes of the podcast "At the heart of the Project", Inkyfada attempts to introduce the members of its electoral campaign and the people who consider themselves to be "at the very heart of the project" that was represented by Kais Said. After the legal changes initiated by the president following July 25, this project is becoming increasingly clear.

Latest episode

The Reconstruction

Those who have been closely involved with the Project claim that the President changed after July 25, more specifically after being - in their words - "betrayed". Indeed, they believe that Hichem El Mechichi subjected Kais Saied to "great disloyalty" whilst he presided over the government.



The road to Democracy

Despite acknowledging the importance of a national consultation, the low participation rate was an embarrassment to Kais Saied. Along with some of his supporters, Saied confronted this critical situation by blaming the media and unknown third parties for the low turnout.

Mandate and attributed powers

In this episode, we interview Kais Saied's supporters about the nature of their involvement and how it takes shape, the roles they play in appointments and their views on some of them, as well as their responses to the criticism directed at Kais Saied for restricting freedoms and harassing opponents.

How it began

In the first episode, members who are associated with Kaïs Saied's political project tell us about how they met him, and how they subsequently decided to support and work with him when he chose to run in the 2019 elections.

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.
