The head of Tunisia’s Ennahda movement Rachid Ghannouchi said the Tunisian factions have agreed to conduct municipal elections before the end of the year.

Ghannouchi explained that the signatories to the Carthage Document met with Prime Minister Youssef Chahed and agreed to hold the elections and to hold regular meetings to arrange for the elections.

In a press statement after a consultative meeting with a number of national organisations, Chahed said that the elections constitute an important stage in the Tunisian democratic path.

He stressed on the need to ensure the success of the elections.

Tunisia was scheduled to hold municipal elections in 2016, but disagreements over some of the terms of the law governing them prevented them going ahead.
