Kamal Ltaief, Tunisia’s most powerful ‘powerbroker’, is arrested by Saied

February 14, 2023

For ordinary Tunisians, there are few things that are "braver" in Tunisian politics than going after Kamal Ltaief. Saied has no legal grounds to arrest Ltaief. However, he is well aware that in doing so, there will be large sections of the Tunisian population who will be surprised that Saied has gone "where no one dared to go before him" and may well temper criticism of Saied from his supporters of having achieved "nothing" for them since seizing power for himself . . .
