Parliamentary recess + Tunisia dominate the talk shows

The parliamentary recess was the main highlight of last night’s talk shows: Kelma Akhira’s Lamees El Hadidi had full coverage of the story, noting that the parliament will resume its sessions before the first Thursday of October (watch, runtime 1:02). Ahmed Moussa also had coverage of the final House session before the summer break (watch, runtime 4:36).

Tunisia’s political crisis is still getting attention from the talking heads: Yahduth Fi Masr’s Sherif Amer covered Tunisian president Kais Saied’s meetings with civil society groups, and spoke to Tunisian MP Amira Sharaf El Deen, who refused to call the president’s actions a coup but said it came as a response to protestors’ anger over the handling of recent spike in covid-19 cases (watch, runtime 5:50). She noted that freezing the parliament for one month might not be enough unless the country brings in the right people to power. Politician Mostafa El Feki told Amer that the Ikhwan have proved a political failure in Tunisia, though he noted that the current crisis doesn’t mean an end to their involvement in Tunisian politics (watch, runtime 5:52 I 3:04).
