The letter also criticized Ghannouchi’s opponents of his bid to run for the presidential elections in 2024.
It is noteworthy that it is not the first message of its kind for Ghannouchi’s opponents within the party, as the same group had previously sent a letter to Ghannouchi last month, calling on him to respect the leadership circulation within the party and to reform the internal situation, which it described as deteriorating.
According to media statements to the signatories of the letter, they were subjected to harassment and marginalization by Ghannouchi and the team close to him, to the extent that they were absent from party meetings.
The leader of the Ennahda Movement, Muhammad bin Salem, called on his colleagues to be rational and not allow Ghannouchi to lead the movement for life, while Ghannouchi commented that what is happening within his party is a democratic movement and a natural difference of opinions preceding the conference.
Observers considered a continuation of intransigence on his part, a deepening of the rift within his party, and a dedication to the violation of the rules of procedure that prevent him from assuming the leadership of the party for more than two consecutive terms.
Ghannouchi and his entourage are working to revise the Basic Law of the party with the absolute majority of the congressmen in order to allow Ghannouchi to be nominated for a new term.
It should be noted that the Executive Office of Ennahda has not yet set an official date for the conference, which will determine whether or not Ghannouchi will remain at the head of the party.
In the context of the same divisions, the People’s Representatives Assembly witnessed the election of Imad al-Hamami, who is known by his kin to Ghannouchi, as the new head of the movement’s bloc in parliament, after he received 31 votes against 21 for his rival Fathi al-Ayadi, who is affiliated with the side opposing Ghannouchi and one of the signatories of the non-extension document for Ghannouchi as the party leader.
Ennahda is witnessing an internal turmoil that went public, especially after accusations of financial corruption that confronted Ghannouchi’s son, his daughter, son-in-law, and former foreign minister Rafik Abdel Salam.
In addition, the movement has registered in the past months the resignations of its most important leadership due to disagreements with Ghannouchi and his entourage, the last of which is Abd al-Fattah Moro, the second man of the party, the founding leader Abd al-Hamid al-Jalasi, the young general secretary Ziad al-Athari, the leader Hammadi al-Jabali, and the movement’s secretary, Zubair al-Shuweidi.
و .كد Political analyst Jamal Al-Arfaoui told “Sky News Arabia” that the crisis within Ennahda has increased, and it has become clear that Ghannouchi is not listening to the message that reached him as he moves forward towards the presidency for life.
He added that “the division of the movement has become a reality expressed by the mutual accusations between the two quarreling parties and the estrangement between Ghannouchi and his inner circle on the one hand, and those demanding the application of the law on the other hand.”
Al-Arfaoui indicated that among the opponents of Ghannouchi there are leaders of the heavyweight and founders of the party expected to be frozen or expelled in response to their positions.
The analyst explained that the struggle within Ennahda, despite what it claims of democracy and respect for the law, is not a war of ideas but a war of positions, and I think that it may be resolved in favor of Ghannouchi, who will not surrender easily and still owns the fund within the party and thus controls the reservoir of votes, as he put it.
For his part, the writer and analyst Majed Barhoumi believed that what is happening in Ennahda is a continuation of the differences of the last conference and the ongoing conflicts between one side that refuses to continue singling out Ghannouchi with the decision and another conservative side that is loyal to Ghannouchi and is more pragmatic and knowledgeable about the scenes where it is clear that regional powers link their support to the party. With the presence of Rashid Ghannouchi, especially the international organization of the Muslim Brotherhood and Turkey
Al-Barhamoumi added, “There is no personality other than Rashid Ghannouchi who might gain the confidence of the international organization of the Muslim Brotherhood and Turkey, and despite his attempt to market to his son-in-law, Rafiq Abd al-Salam, the latter did not gain the confidence of the international organization.”
In statements to “Sky News Arabia,” he confirmed that he is an interest International Brotherhood organization And Turkey in Tunisia concerns Ghannouchi staying at the helm of Ennahda. However, some parties within the party, describing it as simple, believe that the party spends from the money of those involved to win the elections, which is not possible according to the writer, given that Ennahdha spends huge sums of money to buy the receivables of those involved and rigging the elections with political money.
The analyst predicted that Ennahda would diminish and dwarf with time, especially with the succession of Ghannouchi, who became clear that he had become very old and unable to control the internal divisions of his party.
Regarding his candidacy for the presidency or not, Al-Barhoumi said that the matter is merely a maneuver by his opponents within the party to push him to the presidential election holocaust despite their knowledge that his victory is impossible, and the best proof of this is Ennahdas insistence on the parliamentary system and its continuous benefit from the dispersal of democratic forces in the legislative elections, This is because the unification of the constitutionalists, the leftists, the democratic forces, and the centrist movement is enough to remove the Islamists from the scene.
Internationally, Al-Barhoumi considered that the message that reached the United States and the European powers indicates that the Renaissance has fractured and weakened its ability to dominate the Tunisian street.
In Tunisia, expectations are increasing that Ennahdha will have resignations and splits ahead of time Party conference Opinion polls also indicate that more than seventy percent of Tunisians see Rached Ghannouchi as the worst figure in the political scene.
