Tunisia - Current Account

The economy continues to be plagued by political turmoil at the outset of 2019, as the ruling secularist party disintegrates while social unrest erupts over austerity measures demanded by international lenders. On 17 January, around 700,000 public workers went on strike to protest feeble public sector pay raises and high inflation, illustrating the difficult balancing act required of PM Chahed to slash the public deficit without stoking unrest or hamstringing economic growth. On 27 January, Chahed unveiled a new party, Tahya Tounes (“Long Live Tunisia”), confirming the split from President Essebsi’s ruling party and further fragmenting the political landscape ahead of elections scheduled later this year.
