Tunisian President Kais Saied issues new electoral law ahead of parliamentary elections in December

Tunisian President Kais Saied takes the oath of office in Tunis, Tunisia.

Tunisian President Kais Saied has issued a new electoral law ahead of the parliament elections in December, Tunisia’s official gazette said on Thursday.

Under the new law, people would vote for individuals rather than lists as in the previous elections, the gazette added.

Saied suspended the parliament in July 2021 and seized executive power in a move his critics called a coup.
