We hope to support the effectiveness of local programmes and along the same path of presidential and legislative election, these municipal elections showed a representation of the youth and women, something that reflects the awareness of the Tunisian society and its promotion of the interest of women and youth and the local and national levels.

H.E. the President of the Republic Albaj AlKhaleed made a new initiative to enhance equality and the status of women and a separate committee was established to consider the initiative. This initiative is the subject of comprehensive dialogue among different components of the Tunisian society, is a natural extension of the Tunisian pioneering experiment to reform in establishing a progressive society that respects individual and freedoms and collective freedoms and tries to achieve equality between men and women and achievements for women.

Achieving a just and comprehensive desired solution to the Palestinian question represents an urgent priority so we can restore peace and stability to the Middle East region which would enable our brotherly Palestinian people to restore and recover their legitimate rights and establish their state on their territories with East Jerusalem as its capital in accordance with the decisions of international legitimacy and the Arab Peace Initiative on the basis of the two-state solution.
