(TAP) - President of Machrou Tounes Mohsen Marzouk submitted Friday his nomination papers for the early presidential election.

Marzouk told reporters he is standing in elections to give voice to the aspirations of Tunisian youth.

He also urged Tunisians to head to polls with the least possible split and in full respect of political ethics. Sovereignty, dignity and progress will be the watchwords of his campaign, Marzouk added.

Marzouk said he had collected 26,000 voter sponsorships and said it is quite usual to have a large number of candidates but there is need for an in-depth debate about electoral platforms.

He was accompanied by Machrou Tounes MPs and party supporters.

Marzouk was one of the founders of Nidaa Tounes before resigning and founding Machrou Tounes in March 2016.
