(TAP)- Prime Minister Youssef Chahed reiterated his government's outright refusal to see students be victims of the disputes in the education sector because of the decision by the General Union of Secondary Education to boycott first-quarter exams.

Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of the opening of the 33rd Business Days Friday in Sousse, Chahed added that the position expressed by the government is clear.

He called on the union to resume negotiations under the law and respect for the constitution.

The Cabinet meeting held last Wednesday had called on the general union of secondary education to prioritise the interest of students, to reconsider the decision to block the exams and return to the negotiating table, saying the boycott of the exams is contrary to the legal texts governing trade union action.

The boycott of the week exams, which run from December 3 to 8, 2018, continues in most of the middle and high schools of the country.
