Tunisians mobilize against president’s autocratic decisions

Most of the political groups in the country are divided on Saied’s move, with some of them openly supporting it and calling it a much-needed “reform process” in the country. However, leftist parties in the country, such as the Workers Party, opposed president Saied’s move calling it a coup.
