"Our priority is the drafting of a constitution representing all Tunisians" PM says.

RIADH (TAP) - Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali said, on Sunday in Riadh, that the priority for the current stage is the drafting of a constitution representing all the Tunisians, deep-rooted in the Arab-Muslim identity of Tunisia, open on all civilisations and establishing the values of liberty, democracy and peaceful changeover of political power.

Addressing a meeting with the Tunisian community in Riadh, he affirmed that the Tunisian Revolution endeavoured to achieve its objectives, highlighting the important role played by the military and security institutions in the success of the transition process.

On the other hand, Mr. Jebali criticised the political forces in Tunisia "that try to hamper the action of the government," outlining that he was expecting, as soon as he returns home "a wave of critics about his visit in Saudi Arabia and the issue of the former President's extradition to be in the forefront again."

Some members of the expatriate community denounced for their part some media saying they try to tarnish the image of Tunisia abroad.

Mr. Jebali had arrived on Sunday morning in the international king Khaled airport in Riadh.
