Tunisian Constitution - Venice Commission releases comments
Council of Europe, Strasbourg - Today the Venice Commission of the Council of Europe has released the comments by 10 of its experts on the draft Constitution of Tunisia.
The request for opinion on what will become the first democratic Constitution of Tunisia came from the President of the National Constituent Assembly (NCA) Mr Mustafa Ben Jaafer on 3 June this year, shortly after the draft was completed by the NCA.
The rapporteurs of the Commission are impressed with the quality of the work of the NCA. They express hope that the several suggestions formulated in the document released today will be of help to the NCA.
At the next Plenary Session in October 2013, these comments and the developments in the preparation of the Constitution will be discussed by the whole Commission.
