Tunisian protesters decry constitutional reform plans, judicial purge

Hundreds demonstrated on Sunday in Tunisia’s capital against a planned referendum on constitutional changes and President Kais Saied’s recent firing of dozens of judges.

Protesters in Tunis responded to calls from opposition organisations, including Saied’s nemesis the Islamist-inspired Ennahdha party, chanting “constitution, liberty and dignity” and “the people want an independent judiciary”, an AFP correspondent said.
