A key step on gender equality in Tunisia consolidates the foundations for a future effort of ALDA in the country, in cooperation with Lam Echaml Statement of Alessandro Perelli, Vice President of ALDA.

“All citizens, women and men, have the same rights and duties, and they are equal at law without discrimination”. This is stated in article 20 of the new Constitution of Tunisia.

“The political and social confusion that characterized the period following the Arab Revolutions is about to end with the approval of the Constitution, expected by the end of January, and with the formation of a new independent government and the new low on elections”- said ALDA’s Vice President, Alessandro Perelli, coordinator of the working group on Euro-Mediterranean cooperation, which recently met in Trieste, at the premises of the Region Friuli Venezia Giulia.

“Equality between men and women – continued Perelli – is a key step towards a real democratic and liberal society, and shows that the progresses began in 2011 are continuing with concrete facts. Moreover, it represents an example that can involve all the other countries in the Mediterranean area, struggling with democratic growth and respect of civil rights. Those are looking at equal opportunities and gender equality. Those are values on of the Council of Europe, to the family of which ALDA belongs”.

“The decision of the Constituent Assembly of Tunisia is of exceptional importance and the fact that it was made with a substantial agreement between Islamist and laic parliamentarians is a good signal for future developments, although there might be a risk of obstacles and attempts to restoration. It is also an incentive for local authorities and associations, which, together with Moncef Ben Slimane, President of the Association of Civil Society Lam Echaml of Tunis, are working for the creation of a Local Democracy Agency in Tunisia.
