May 6, 2011 – TAP  - The Experts Committee stemming from the High Authority for the Achievement of Revolution Objectives, Political Reform and Democratic Transition "was not in any way supported or assisted by foreign experts for drafting the decree-laws pertaining to the elections", High Authority Chairman Iyadh Ben Achour said, on Friday.
"Though foreign diplomatic or technical delegations are welcome, it has been agreed on that the democratic transition could be achieved only by the exclusive contribution of Tunisian competences", Mr. Ben Achour recalled in a communiqué released by the High Authority.
The communiqué was made public following the statement of Ambassador and Head of the European Commission's delegation in Tunis Adrianus Koetsenruijter, on Thursday, in French-speaking "Le Temps" daily.

In that interview, Mr. Koetsenruijter stated: "Our experts were in Tunisia in the period ranging between last January and April 15. They helped Iyadh Ben Achour's team prepare the Electoral Code".
