(TAP) - The Tunisian General Labour Union (UGTT) called for the neutrality of the administration and mosques and to avoid any attempt at political manipulation of these structures.

The trade union centre also called to refrain from any decisions taken for appointments or granting duties, pending the formation of a government following the forthcoming elections.

In a statement issued at the end of the meeting of the Administrative Commission held on Thursday on the general situation in the country, the UGTT reiterated its determination to make the elections a success and guarantee their transparency.

The trade union centre mentioned the lack of visibility of the voting operation because of the political tensions that are manifested through the amendments introduced to the electoral law, a few weeks before the election date, whose aim is to exclude certain candidates.

The UGTT has previously called for the postponement of these elections, and for a national dialogue to involve the various social and political parties and analyse the amendments introduced, according to the same source.

According to the UGTT, key components of the House of People's Representatives (HPR) intended to defeat the completion of the establishment of constitutional Authorities including human rights, sustainable development, good governance, anti-corruption, in addition to the establishment of the Constitutional Court and the use of certain social issues pending for years as a propaganda tool.

The trade union centre reiterated its call to trade unionists to control the voting process, encouraging workers to participate and to choose their representatives carefully.
