During a plenary session, the Tunisian parliament dropped a draft law approving an agreement between the Government of the Republic of Tunisia and the Qatar Fund for Development to open an office in Tunisia.

In the vote on the bill, 51 deputies voted in favor, 39 rejected it, and 25 abstained.

Finance Minister Sihem Boughdiri Nemsia stressed during the session that the project does not affect in any way the national sovereignty of Tunisia, noting that it will promote investment and development projects.

The minister stated that the government that prepared the 2024 finance law seeks to attract investment and advance development and has no other options, especially in light of the aspiration to achieve higher growth rates.

It is noteworthy that the previous parliament had ratified this agreement during a plenary session held on June 30, 2021, before it was frozen on July 25, 2021, after which the parliament was dissolved on March 30, 2022.

The agreement had faced opposition from some MPs and rejection from the Free Constitutional Bloc, who staged a sit-in protest.
