BEN AROUS (TAP) – The official spokesperson for the Tunisian Communist Workers Party (PCOT) Hamma Hammami called for the establishment of a democratic regime whose foreign policy will be anti-imperialist and anti-Zionist and advocated the strengthening of ties between Arab peoples who share common aspirations for freedom and union.
In a meeting held on Wednesday at El-Mourouj, Tunis Governorate, under tight security and military protection, Mr. Hammami stressed on the urgent need to separate politics and religion so as to allow all citizens to practice freely their religious beliefs.
He warned, on this context, against making use of religion to serve political ends, as this could threaten the national interest.
“New Tunisia should favour coexistence among Muslims, Jews and Christians, and all convictions,” he reasserted.
Besides, Mr. Hammami stressed the importance of carrying on the militant fight to rid the country of the vestiges of the old regime, build up a democratic republic, one that bans tyranny, exclusion and marginalisation and ensures independence of the Judiciary, favours separation of powers and guarantees fair distribution of the country’s wealth and provides to all citizens a decent life.
