” HAVE force to want to do well, we make mistakes … This text indicates that the legal aspect will take place after the consultation phase … This will be done by the Advisory Committee on Economic and Social Affairs … We need to take an approach that starts with priorities and not the development of a legal text … I sent letters and invitations to financial experts to gather ideas, suggestions and visions. I called them to participate in the writing of objects », he said, answering a question on consulting economic and social actors before setting up the National Commission.
Sadok Belaid assured that the President of the Republic, contrary to the claims of the political parties, was not stubborn in making decisions and did not impose his conditions during exchanges and debates. He has confirmed that any party who can add value will be consulted.
In response to the refusal expressed due to the method by which the deans were convened, Sadok Belaid confirmed that they were public servants and that they needed to mobilize to serve the interests of the country. ” They can be invited to participate in a committee’s work by a simple phone call … I can not remember not have previously asked to receive an invitation card to be able to attend something the same “, he added.

” It is possible to study the question of the establishment of governance of the bases, if this project serves the interests of the Tunisians … I had suggested to the President to use the term “for a new Tunisia”. The president wanted to choose the term “Republic.” Maybe he was trying to give a good picture of Tunisia abroad … We had suggested a neutral expression: the Political Reform Committee. These are just simple details. The most important thing is the substance and not the form “, He continued.
Sadok Belaid believed that political Islam has provided some opportunity to become rich and achieve huge sums for the benefit of some people within the framework of the compensation mechanism.

He also criticized the provision of compensation to people who were in America or England.
He also insisted on preserving and preserving the results of the revolution and the Tunisian people such as democracy, the rule of law and institutions and gender equality. ” This is our ticket to the international community … Habib Bourguiba had insisted on mentioning these elements of the Constitution in order to convince and have the support of Western forces. “, he said.
