July 13, 2011 – TAP -  Interim Prime Minister Béji Caïd Essebsi affirmed that "differences should not lead any party to leave the High Authority for the Achievement of Revolution Objectives, Political Reform and Democratic Transition (HAARO) in view of the delicate nature of the current stage which is recording a security, economic and media drift".
In his address at the opening of the meeting he had Wednesday morning with the High Authority's president and members, he said he had'' tried, out of his sense of duty, to contact the different political tendencies that pulled out of the Authority and convince them to return", voicing hope that these parties will reconsider their decision to withdraw as soon as possible.
The Government, the Caretaker PM went on saying, had tried to figure out differences and find adequate solutions to them, reminding that "the differences have invariably led to a consensus".
He affirmed, in this regard, that the Government had been dealing with all legal political parties as equals, stressing the need for all of them to participate in the process of democratic transition to serve Tunisia's interests.
The PM expressed gratitude to the High Authority for the efforts it is making to ensure the success of the transition process.
Earlier, HAARO President Yadh Ben Achour had highlighted "the serious and delicate nature of the present stage” in Tunisia at the political and social levels. He also reminded of the decree-law organising the composition and work of the High Authority and providing it with the possibility to discuss and exchange views with the Interim Government over the country's public affairs.
