March. 17, 2011 - TAP - Head of the Venice Commission (European Commission for Democracy through law) Gianni Buquicchio reaffirmed on Thursday in Tunis the will of the Commission to support Tunisia's efforts at this transitional stage which should be crowned with the election of a constituent assembly.
At a meeting he had here on Thursday morning with Interim Prime Minister Béji Caïd Essebsi, he reminded that the Venice Commission enjoyed a large experience in matters of constitutional assistance, especially with East European countries.
"We stand by the side of Tunisia's Government and people to reinforce this process whose effects will be decisive not only for Tunisia but for the whole South Mediterranean area", he said, adding : "Tunisia needs stability to secure the establishment of the foundations of a democratic state respecting Human Rights and providing equality between both sexes."
Set up in 1990, The Venice Commission gathers 47 European Council member states and 10 non-European states.
Tunisia joined the Commission in May 2008.
