(TAP) – Aswat Nissa called Tuesday on President Kais Saied to safeguard respect for the Constitution and eliminate all forms of inequality or discrimination among Tunisians in legislation, including the inheritance law, especially as Tunisia ratified the Convention on the elimination of all forms of discrimination against women.

The civil society organisation denounced the President's remarks on National Women's Day (August 13) that the Quran spells out clearly inheritance laws and there is no room for any other interpretation.

In this vein, Aswat Nissa urged Saied to uphold equality among citizens, safeguard and bolster women's rights and take necessary measures to eliminate violence against women pursuant to Articles 21 and 46 of the Constitution.
