Tunisia coup: Saied 'plans to change political system, suspend constitution'

Tunisian President Kais Saied is planning to suspend the constitution and call a referendum to amend the political system, according to one of his senior advisors.

Saied's move more than six weeks ago to suspend parliament and dismiss the prime minister has triggered political turmoil and been branded a "constitutional coup" by many political forces in the country.

In May, Middle East Eye revealed a secret document was being circulated recommending Saied invoke Article 80 of the constitution and seize control of the country, citing emergency powers.
