ALDA condoles with Tunisia for the loss of President Essebsi

ALDA condoles with the Tunisian people and the international community for the loss, some days ago, of Mr Beji Caid Essebsi, who served as President of Tunisia until his very last day after a long career in Tunisian politics holding several high-level offices.

In the words of ALDA Vice-President Mr Alessandro Perelli, “Mr Beji Caid Essebsi leaves a great void in the democratic community of Mediterranean Africa and the European Union.” ALDA, which is always at the forefront for the promotion of democratic rights and European values, has opened in 2017 in Kairouan (Tunisia) the first Local Democracy Agency in Mediterranean Africa, putting itself at the side of the democratization and development efforts made by the Tunisian community, particularly with respect to critical issues such as gender equality, religious freedom, defence of minorities and active citizenship.

We have no doubt that Tunisia will continue on its democratic path, also through further strengthening of the institutional and financial cooperation with the European Union.
