Ennahdha member Radwan Masmoudi is continually stirring up controversy. The latest relates to President Saied’s July 25 decisions and was prompted by Masmoudi’s tweet about US aid for Tunisia in the fight against Covid-19. A comment justifying the possible suspension of US assistance provoked outcry on social media: « If legal experts determine that it was a coup, which obviously it was, they will be forced to withhold any kind of assistance or support. That’s the law, and I think they are very close to announcing that it was indeed a coup against democracy and the democratic institutions », he posted before later deleting the comment. Masmoudi has since denied accusations against him relating to the comment.
