Town Hall on Tunisian Political Deadlock
AAM partnered with leading Tunisian radio station Shems FM to host a town hall discussion on the country’s ongoing political deadlock and its impact on Tunisians’ daily lives. The event brought together studio audiences in Tunis, Medenine (in southern Tunisia), and the northern city of Beja. Listeners also phoned into the talk program from around the country.
- Ziad Aazari, Member of the Ennahda Movement

The panelists and audience – which included citizens and activists – debated the deteriorating security situation; growing unemployment in Tunisia; and the deadlock over the constitution and political process. Audiences also shared their personal accounts of how the political crisis has negatively impacted their businesses.
