(TAP) – Spokesperson for the July 25 Harak, Mahmoud Ben Mabrouk, said the movement has won most of the seats in the parliament with more than 80 MPs, noting that the latter's names and number will be announced after the challenges against the election run-off results are ruled on.

At a press conference Wednesday in Tunis, Ben Mabrouk stressed that the next parliament is "perfectly independent. "It will choose its president without the intervention of any political party," he said.

"There has been no intervention from President Kaïs Saïed about the presidency of the parliament," he said.

He, on another level, mentioned the issues of sending young people in conflict zones and the flow of irregular migration that the country has experienced last year, accusing the Ennahdha movement and "the Salvation Front" to fuel tensions to sabotage the referendum and elections.

"Despite all attempts to disrupt the process launched by the President of the Republic, it has been completed and has achieved its objectives," he said, criticizing the harassment exercised by governors on members of regional coordination committees.

For his part, deputy secretary general of the Harak in charge of political affairs Hatem Yahyaoui said "the movement is open to all those who wish to join its parliamentary bloc," he added, stressing that the Harak will continue to support the Head of State as long as he is committed to serving the national process and its objectives.

For his part, Séjiâ Bdida, Deputy Secretary General of Harak, said that the movement has now won the confidence of Tunisians and has managed to impose itself despite the difficulties encountered.

She recalled that the project of the movement is based on the principle of accountability and monitoring of the cases of corruption and those related to sending of young people to conflict zones.

She added: the July 25 Harak will launch "a regional dialogue" with countries including, primarily, Egypt and Algeria and will work to support parliamentary diplomacy and stay away from political strife.

The movement will also work to amend the electoral law, including cancelling sponsorship in the candidacy for parliamentary elections, she said.
