Tunisian President Kais Saied orders the Assembly of the Representatives of the People to be dissolved, after 116 of the 124 MPs who convened online voted earlier in the day to strip Saied of the "exceptional measures" he had taken on since last July.
Speaker of the Assembly Rached Ghannouchi announces that the parliament will hold two full sessions this week, the first time since President Kais Saied seized most executive powers and suspended parliament last July, to try to block attempts by Saied to adopt a new constitution that will solidify his rule.
