(TAP) – The Constitutional Court will be installed in two or three months at the latest, said Minister for Human Rights and Relations with Constitutional Bodies and Civil Society, Mehdi Ben Gharbia.
“After last Sunday’s election of the Higher Judicial Council (HJC), we are now ready to install the Constitutional Court,” he pointed out.
In an interview with TAP, he stressed the need to install the HJC and give it time to develop its regulations.
On the fate of the projects organising the rest of the constitutional bodies, Ben Gharbia emphasised the need to expedite consideration of the draft framework law on these bodies, developed by the Ministry.
The bill on the human rights’ authority was sent to the parliament, he said, while the one organising the sustainable development body has recently been finalised.
Regarding the bill on good governance and fight against corruption, recently considered at an inner Cabinet meeting, Ben Gharbia spoke of “differences of opinion between some departments.”
Regarding the draft law on the regulatory broadcasting authority, Mehdi Ben Gharbia said his department has associated the Independent High Broadcasting Authority (HAICA) and private sector representatives and will attempt to reconcile between the opinion of these parties and those of the administrative court and experts.
