(TAP) – The works of the regional day for boosting micro-projects in Tataouine, held under the chairmanship of  The President of the Government Youssef Chahed, was suspended following the rise of tensions after the announcement of decisions on employment and development in the region

Disgruntled, young people who attended the meeting felt that the decisions announced by The President of the Government did not meet their aspirations.

"We are demanding urgent, new decisions and we reject warmed measures," one of the protesters told TAP.

A young woman of the region described the measures decided by Chahed are inconsistent. She added that the emergency department of the Tataouine regional hospital is not the only priority, stressing the urgent need for a gynecologist and doctors of various specialties.

When leaving the seat of the governorate, "dégage" was shouted to Youssef Chahed.

The President of the Government announced during the meeting, which was attended by several regional executives and representatives of civil society, 64 measures covering various sectors of activity.

He called to place the present stage under the sign of national construction to promote development and guarantee a fair distribution of wealth.

Youssef Chahed said that regional development will always be at the top of the national unity
