Tunis, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 5th Aug, 2021 ) :Tunisia's Islamist-inspired Ennahdha party said Thursday it was ready for "self-critique", days after President Kais Saied suspended parliament and sacked the prime minister.
Its Consultative Council "stresses the necessity of the party undertaking a profound internal self-critique of its policies", a statement said.
It also cited the need for "revisions and renewal" of its programmes and leadership structures.
The council, which met Wednesday, "expresses understanding of the growing popular anger, particularly among youth, as a result of economic and social failings" a decade after the revolution.
It said it held "the whole political class" responsible and urged "a speedy return to normal constitutional order and lifting the suspension of parliament".
Ennahdha is ready for "positive interaction to help overcome obstacles and secure the best conditions for resuming the democratic process", it added.
The move came after months of political crisis and amid growing public anger over deep economic woes and spiralling coronavirus cases.
