Director of Tunisian president’s office resigns
Nadia Okasha cites ‘fundamental differences’ for stepping down
The director of Tunisian President Kais Saied’s office resigned on Monday.
Citing “fundamental differences," Nadia Okasha said on Facebook that she had tendered her resignation.
She gave no further details about the reasons for her stepping down.
There was no comment from Tunisian authorities on the news.
On July 25, 2021, Saied ousted the government, suspended parliament, and assumed executive authority.
While he insists that his "exceptional measures" are meant to "save" the country, critics have accused him of orchestrating a coup.
