The European Parliament hosted a 40-strong delegation from the Tunisian ARP, led by its President M.Mohamed Ennaceur, including leaders of the political factions, parliamentarians and high-level staff.
Tunisia is among the 8 priority countries that the European Parliament’s Democracy Support and Election Coordination Group has selected since 2015 for parliamentary support and capacity building activities.
