The title of a recently released Yahoo! article is “New Tunisian government wins ASSEMBLY approval” (Web-site/URL: http://news.yahoo.com/tunisian-government-wins-confidence-vote-assembly-121829968–business.html).
“Tunisia’s new ISLAMIST-led government won a confidence vote on Wednesday (March 13, 2013), as the death of an UNEMPLOYED man who had set himself on fire in despair underscored the scale of its task“. “unemployed” again reinforces the fact that this is an ECONOMIC/FINANCIAL situation and that MONEY is a TABOO subject not just in the Middle East but in many other countries but especially in CHINA (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xGzCQZAs-dE). On top of this, of course, we know how PROBLEMATIC “Islamist” governments are because of some OUTRAGEOUS practices such as FORCING WOMEN TO WEAR VEILS (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI).
“Prime Minister Ali Larayedh has said the government, which was backed by 139 of the National Constituent Assembly’s 217 members, would serve only until an election later in the year (2013)”. IS THIS POSSIBLE given the fact that POLITICIANS like to HANG ON TO POWER? 139/217 is about 64% which is a majority but there is a significant MINORITY of about 36% who DO NOT support this government.
(Speaking) of Khedhri’s death on Wednesday (March 13, 2013), without commenting further”, Larayedh said: “We RECEIVED THE MESSAGE (?)”, HAVE THEY? REALLY?
Finally, according to Salem Ben Naceur, “a 35-year-old teacher in Tunis”, “After the spread of POVERTY and UNEMPLOYMENT, now THE MIDDLE CLASS is suffering” and of course “the middle class” DRIVES/FUELS ECONOMIC GROWTH. “We CAN’T support deducting 1 percent of salaries, or the CRAZY rise of food prices and now fuels”, both of which are necessities for SURVIVAL.
To conclude, let’s return once again to the title: “New Tunisian government wins ASSEMBLY approval”. So we have to keep an eye on because again as we’ve seen, “ASSEMBLY approval” in many cases DOES NOT = STREET “approval”, as GIGI IBRAHIM (gsquare86) would say.
