Saeed issues a decision to establish a temporary Supreme Judicial Council

On Sunday, the Tunisian presidency said on its Facebook account that President Kais Saied had issued a decision to create a temporary Supreme Judicial Council to replace the current Judicial Council.

Last week, President Saeed announced his intention to dissolve the Supreme Judicial Council, the latest in a series of moves he started on July 25.

Two days ago, Tunisian Minister of Justice, Leila Jaffal, said that the Tunisian president would not dissolve the Supreme Judicial Council, but would change the law regulating it.

Saeed took the step after his stinging criticism of the judges for months, when he repeatedly stated that he would not allow there to be a state for the judiciary, but rather a state judiciary.

He frequently criticized the judiciary’s delay in issuing rulings in cases of corruption and terrorism, saying that there is corruption and that he is determined to reform the judiciary.
