(TAP) – The Ennahdha movement did not call for the resignation of Youssef Chahed's government, but rather urged it to move ahead with the implementation of urgent reforms and stay away from the next political events, Movement spokesman Imed Khémiri said.

"The current government should adopt the 63 points set out in Carthage Document 2 and start implementing economic and social reforms," he said.

"The government should focus primarily on the recovery of the difficult economic situation in the country," he said.

In a statement issued Wednesday after the meeting of its executive bureau, Ennahdha Movement said that "Tunisia needs a stable and impartial political government exclusively dedicated to saving the country and to implementing the reforms defined in the Carthage Document 2 ".

"The government will work to overcome the economic difficulties and reduce the pressure on public finance, to fight against corruption, to improve the situation of the poor social categories, to support investment, to promote export and to control price," the statement reads.

Ennahdha had also reaffirmed commitment to the principle of consensus, which it said represented the right framework for initiating a dialogue on key national issues.

Recently convened, the Shura Council considered that the Prime Minister and the government should not be concerned by the electoral competition, noting that a cabinet shuffle will be made as soon as possible in order to undertake the socio-economic reforms planned in the Carthage Document.

"All members of the current government can stand for election after leaving their posts," he said.

Ennahdha will continue to support the current government, provided it is not concerned by the presidential and legislative elections, he insisted.
