June 02, 2011 - TAP - Tunisia's Labour Union (UGTT) Secretary General Abdessalem Jrad said that " the Union cares more for providing the conditions of success to the elections than for date of elections, the aim being to enable the Tunisian people to exercise for the first time their right to vote in an atmosphere of democracy, transparency and integrity".
At the end of his meeting Thursday morning with Interim Prime Minister Béji Caïd Essebsi, Jrad called on all Tunisians to "avoid confrontations that might hinder the democratic process and reach a spirit of consensus on the elections of the Constituent Assembly".
He stressed the importance of these elections "especially as all eyes are turned towards Tunisia in this decisive stage of its history".
The meeting, he added, allowed to discuss different issues such as youths' employment, indebtedness and means to attract foreign investments.
