"Constitutional Court members' election process slowly moving towards consensus," says Ben Souf.

(TAP) - "The election process of members of the Constitutional Court is slowly moving towards a consensus," assessor of the House of People's Representatives (HPR) Speaker in charge of communication and information, Mohamed Ben Souf said Tuesday.

Joined by the TAP agency, Ben Souf blamed political parties and parliamentary groups for the slowness, saying they "must make concessions to reach consensus as soon as possible."

"The majority needed for the establishment of the Constitutional Court is two-thirds of members of the Parliament and no MP or parliamentary group can validate a candidate without reaching consensus with the majority of parliamentary blocs," he stressed.
