(TAP) – The Cabinet meeting chaired by Prime Minister Youssef Chahed on Wednesday has called on the general union of secondary education to abandon the boycott of exams and return to the negotiating table.

The Cabinet emphasised the need to prioritise the interest of students and consider dialogue as the best solution to overcome the differences, said a statement from the Prime Ministry.

It expressed concern over the disruption recorded among students, following this call, saying it is "contrary" to the provisions of the constitution and laws regulating trade union activity.

The Cabinet meeting said it was "committed" to apply the law and to place the high interest of students above all consideration, reads the same source.

Following the call of the general union of secondary education under the Tunisian General Labour Union (UGTT), the majority of high and middle schools in the country saw a disruption of exams in the exam week running from December 3 to 8
