Tunisia Security Updates

TS Update-(Progress + Challenges)

Greetings Expats,

Great week on my side of town.  Received consistent support from security colleagues, beautiful weather, and attended many nice expat events. I even had the opportunity to see Santa in Tunis.

Announcement=Challenging Weeks Ahead

Update: “Tunisia’s political parties have chosen Industry Minister Mehdi Jomaa to head a government of independent figures aimed at pulling the country out of a months-long crisis.”

The challenge:”The new premier has 15 days to form his new government of independents.”  During this period we can expect a mix of protests & increased security presence.

Expats Focus 

Even before the announcement, Tunisian officials reported that they would increase security in response to general threats.  On Tuesday, December 17th, organizers plan on holding a “peaceful day of range” in Sidi Bouzid.

Social media sites and local online publications will go into overdrive with rumors, theories, and predictions.  It’s important that we continue to share confirmed & relevant information especially during the next 2 weeks.

Seasons Greetings & Stay Safe.
