Are Tunisians ready for a constitutional referendum?

Are Tunisians ready for a constitutional referendum?

After a national consultation to frame a new constitution, many wonder if Tunisia will continue down a democratic path.
For the last eight months, Tunisian President Kais Saied has initiated several political changes in the North African country: sacking his prime minister, suspending parliament, announcing rule by decree and dissolving the Supreme Judicial Council. His opponents have accused him of a coup, while the country deals with a deep economic crisis and food shortages.

This week, a national consultation process to help frame a new constitution ended. Still, many are left wondering whether the country will continue down a democratic path.
