(TAP)- There is no democracy without freedom and equality, the National Union of Tunisian Women (French: UNFT) said on Tuesday as the country is observing the 9th anniversary of the Revolution.

Tunisia needs to attain the goals of the Revolution by means of increasing women's presence in decision-making positions. Sustainable development and democracy cannot be achieved unless women are involved in the decision-making process.

The organisation hailed the Tunisian Revolution as " an exception" in the Arab region. Notwithstanding an arduous path, it said, Tunisia broke with dictatorship and upheld democracy and public and private freedoms.

The UNFT commended the sacrifices made by women and the patriotism they demonstrated in championiong the civic character of the State.

It also said their determination to contribute to securing the success of democratic transition is laudable.
