April 21, 2011 - TAP - Interim President Foued Mebazaa received, on Thursday in Carthage, a delegation of Commission Chairmen from the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE), led by Assembly President Mevlut Cavusoglu.
"We had with President Mebazaa an excellent and fruitful discussion during which we reiterated our support to Tunisia at this stage of its democratic transition," Mr. Cavusoglu said, at the end of the meeting.
PACE, he added, is ready to assist Tunisia in building up its democratic institutions, notably in drafting a new Constitution and the electoral law. "We looked at means that would give concrete shape to this assistance," he specified.
The talk also provided the opportunity to "discuss the situation in Libya and its consequences on Tunisia as a neighbouring country," he concluded.
