Tunisia democracy fails again

  • President suspends Parliament, where the largest party is Islamist Ennahda (21%); little read across to Egypt or Morocco

  • Follows protests over incompetent Covid management, economic hardship, corruption; youth unemployment close to 40%

  • Actions are constitutional and, on their own, may not derail IMF deal but credibility of reform commitment is very low
