Three years ago, the Tunisian Parliament voted for a constitution that foresees a new Constitutional Court. Until today that Court has not been established, leaving a critical gap in the country’s system of democratic checks and balances. Experts participating in DRI’s seminar “La prise de décision au sein de la Cour Constitutionnelle” on 19 April 2017 agreed that setting up the Court swiftly is crucial.
DRI has supported both the drafting of the 2014 Constitution and the development of the 2015 law on the Constitutional Court, the two documents providing a legal framework for establishing the first Tunisian Constitutional Court.
For more information regarding the legal framework of the Tunisian Constitutional Court please refer to the DRI report (french).
