Tunisia’s president sacks regional governors

Tunisian President Kais Saied has sacked more regional governors, as he continues to implement a range of exceptional measures.

The senior officials in Monastir, Medenine and Zaghouan were all dismissed.

This followed the recent sacking of the governor of Sfax.

Late last month, the president sacked Tunisia’s Prime Minister Hichem Mechichi and suspended parliament.

Mr Saied’s opponents have accused him of staging a coup.

But his actions have been largely welcomed by a public that has been deeply disillusioned by the performance of the country’s political parties.
