It is threatening to explode,” considering that “the absence of interaction with the national political and social forces will only lead to transforming the people into rival entities incapable of peaceful coexistence.” They have the right to know the course of the country,” adding that “the separation of powers, the revision of the electoral law, and the call for early, transparent and fair elections have become a necessity.”
The Federation’s Assistant Secretary-General, Sami Al-Tahri, affirmed earlier today that the Federation would not accept “marginalization” of its role in the country, nor “attempts to undermine its independence.”
