(TAP) - The campaign team of "Heart of Tunisia" candidate in the early presidential election 2019 Nabil Karoui said held a meeting with citizens in Menchia, Kairouan.

They said the fight against poverty and marginalisation is among the priorities of their candidate, calling for a "social contract against poverty" guaranteeing health, education, housing and water.

Leader in the party, Osama Khelifi told TAP "members of the campaign preferred to directly communicate with the citizens to introduce the programme of their candidate Nabil Karoui who is jailed in Mornaguia on suspicion of tax evasion and money laundering.”

Earlier in the day, Nabil Karoui's campaign team inaugurated the party's new headquarters in downtown Kairouan.

On the presidential candidate’s programme, Osama Khelifi emphasised the importance of developing the concept of national security to involve strategic and sensitive sectors such as water, health, energy, food security, knowledge and technology and exploiting all the potential to eradicate terrorism and restore Tunisia’s prestige on the international scene.

After the inauguration of the regional headquarters of the "Heart of Tunisia" party, members of the campaign went to the city of Oueslatia and conducted direct contacts with citizens and distributed leaflets to publicise the electoral programme of their candidate.
