8:07 pm
always very influential in the politics of the country. what's the outcome of that meeting being this? so they made a statement after the meeting and apparently they are supportive between the lines and even, you know, by every means they have that statement supports the president. it is not criticize the measures the president took over the night. it called for every party to stick to the constitutional legality. no explanation of what they meant by that. considering that many should be, many sides have accused the president of violating the constitution. they also called for every fight to stay away from violence. they wanted the court on the president to stick to the deadline he gave of 30 days and should not extend the emergency measures beyond that. so i mean, the president came out stronger certainly from this meeting because of what the work questions about what, what the reaction of the, of those unions be they, they have a history of support and that isn't. and also the military,
8:08 pm
the military apparently are supporting the president, so he's come out stronger after hours of suspense, several hours of suspense. people didn't know what the situation was when he did not address phoenician. he hasn't yet done that. tunisia are waiting for the president to give some explanations for his actions and also lots of questions about the future. the next few days and a few. the next few weeks. those large blocks mike and not going to be marginalized for over. they have, they have a very huge presence in the parliament, normally, in a, in a, in a parliamentary democracy. they should have se, in the formation of the cabinet law didn't happen last year and not expected to happen. now, as the president has only consolidated his his powers further, i mean in many respects and according to many analysts, tunisia is not going into the right way of democracy under the president, reverse of some of his decisions and listen to all of the blocks in the in the,
8:09 pm
in the, in the political cloth moment. well, thanks very much for the update. while earlier we spoke to tennessee, a former president moles at missouri. he told us supporters of car site might not realize as supporting a new dictator. we have this political crisis and that's the worst process that we have ever had. international have 100 people dying every day from corona virus, and then we have also a huge crate. so this one, if you could kind of excuse me because people are exhausted, they are scared and nobody knows exactly where we are heading. i know this is not exactly what we would say, a wise man, and i'm afraid what his reaction the next few days when we faced the opposition growing from the bottom from the suicide. i don't know exactly what my main concern is, how to work with the army out there that the military would react. i know very closely
8:10 pm
this to me because i have been, have been in the head of state 2 years though. i know peter very well. i know that they have protected lucian constitution at that time and i do hope that they will get this attitude. people are expecting enough from the democracy from the from the problem. and that is extremely important. this is why, for the moment some of the population, it's important, but they don't understand that. in fact, they are supporting you in decatur. and this movie will never be able to make the social problem. and because he was part of the system political system, i think he's responsible for, for the government. well,
8:11 pm
following the stormy or the offices of val just or into this, we spent challenges there as soon as bureau chief, lucy, hunt g, about the situation not had that. and what's happened is a security forces stormed out. there is offices and tune is and asked the staff to leave. they prevented staff from even taking personal belongings. and they said that they represent the security services in tennessee. yeah, i asked them if the average destry permit and they said no, we don't have one. these are the instructions of the interior ministry. that's despite the fact that we have laws in tennessee and they can't do this. we see this is unfair. it's against fairness because it doesn't depend on the district ruling. so don't know our faith have the office. they have the keys, but we will go to the history and we'll see what happens. security forces are surrounding the office and the facility upstairs. they prevent anyone from entering our office and preventing us from using our computers for hope. this is a new decision which is unfair and it might development other action because to news. yeah. over the last 10 years we've gotten used to freedom of press of work
8:12 pm
and the specter of law shod regarding the staff voucher 0. we are prevented from talking to anyone today. i think they're trying to even go through our mobile phone with are concerned because within this illegal decision we cannot work because i cannot convey our message. so the thing global condemnation by press freedom advocates of the false closure vouchers, there is officers reported without borders, says it denounces the claims revolved as their office in tune as by security forces and calls on the authorities to respect press freedom and pluralism. the international press institute says the raid on out there is office is a gross violation of press freedom and an act of intimidation to silence independent media. pauline ned as the valets, a spokesperson for reporters without border. she says this thing, vigilant of any attacks on media outlets into nicea. the most important thing is to say that the stage reports without border is
8:13 pm
a bit different and looking at the situation and the potential aspects from press freedom in the country. as we said yesterday evening after the 1st and last month my, the president. yes, the security for the internet. and we are looking carefully at least to ation. we denounced the move and we consider that the garage of press and the freedom of the press has to be respected by the treaty during the time when the political crises ongoing since yesterday night in the country rock sun for months. here is a lecture on modern, middle east politics of the university of cambridge and joins me now via skype from new hampton in new york. could help you with this on the program. how would you assess the president's position?
8:14 pm
at the moment he seems to be perhaps in a stronger position with the unions of the military behind him. he is, but it's a very volatile situation and it's very clear that the opposition is well and not has presented a strong counter force to him. they're sitting and they've got to sit in front of the parliament. they've issued a very strong statement and it is not very clear, even though it's a moment the military is behind the president. the, the issue is not clear whether the military to support him at this stage varies, contributed to al jazeera throughout the day, about their own opinions about the military and where they position themselves during this scenario, as it's unfolded in less than 24 hours. what's your opinion about the military before and after? we might say this impasse that the president has created?
8:15 pm
well, that i think is why the question is open as to where they're going to stand, because the military was certainly quite strong. after the revolution that overturned the 90, but they had chosen to step back and they have been very good about being in the, in the background during the period of the effort a democracy over the last 10 years. so they have not been axes. they've instead been very much more focused on containing terrorism in, in the country. and so they've not been political and one of the other elements in each role of the parties led by the new stock, who is the old need a tune your party, which is very much where the forest was the upper class a meet saul. and he is very against my plate. and so it is not clear at
8:16 pm
all whether there is not several courses at the moment competing for power here he's very and he's not had a background in politics. he's very unexperienced in this type of thing. and what we're seeing is a very delicate and very volatile situation, which he's not well trained to deal with. will of course one the issue that or 2 issues that the president of the government were unable to control when he would be the economy and health matters. when it comes to cov, it has, it's been a situation that the president has been able to take advantage of. and this is why we're in the position we are right now. well, that's absolutely correct the president had it has been, sir. mine's been planning on trying to do this kind of for some time, it is possible that he discussed this on his trip to egypt just a few months ago to see president tc, a very similar life in egypt. and he was just waiting for him to take care moment,
8:17 pm
which is very much the whole cobit situation, which has been very badly handled by the governor simply because of the standoff between the prime minister and the president, the prime minister. of course, now they've been let go by, they are fired by the president. but this situation really throws another span or into this works. because if the new program that that played is fine to set up and take control over does not well handle the situation which is skyrocketing. and then that could cause further demonstrations and opposition against him by those who are supporting him at the moment because they want some kind of change to take place in the way that the cobra is being handled and certainly by fluid and developing situational rebels. come back to you for more analysis in the coming days for the by bit roxanne, for man, for my he and thanks so much for joining us from cambridge university. thank you.
