The Tunisian president has appointed former national security adviser Ridha Garsalaoui to run the Interior Ministry. Kais Saied also pledged to implement the constitutional text and safeguard people’s rights and freedoms. On Sunday, the president dismissed the government and suspended the parliament for a month. Saied said he made the move to save his country from corruption and plots to sow civil strife amid a surge in misgovernance, faltering economy, and a spiraling COVID-19 outbreak. Tunisians are awaiting the appointment of a new prime minister and the announcement of a plan to end the political and economic crisis in the country.
