Last month Tunisia’s president Kaies Saeid decided to consolidate power around himself by suspending parliament, firing his prime minister, and assuming leadership of the defense, interior, and justice ministries. The country is now teetering over the edge of a possible return to the one-man rule Tunisians had rejected ten years ago. This week, we’ll get an update on the political crisis in Tunisia from Tunisian scholar and political analyst Mohamed Dhia Hammami- Later in the program, we will speak with Elham Fakhro, a Senior Analyst at the International Crisis Group about the Abraham accord: On August 13th the United States brokered a normalization agreement between Israel and The United Arab Emirates, which was soon followed by Bahrain Sudan and Morocco.
