Tunisian PM Booed Out of Town Hall Meeting

Tunisian Prime Minister Youssef Chahed was booed off stage as he on Thursday addressed a town hall meeting in a southeastern region rocked by protests and a general strike. Six years since a revolution ignited by grievances over joblessness, corruption and perceived marginalization of the country’s periphery, Tunisia has seen a wave of protests, News24 reported. Chahed and several government ministers arrived in the town of Tataouine to find a town closed down by a general strike. The prime minister met representatives of civil society and announced measures to develop the region, which many locals claim is marginalized. “Tataouine’s right to development is not a favor,” he said in a speech at the town hall. But some of those attending the meeting shouted him down. Tataouine locals have long demanded more jobs and a bigger share of the revenues from oil extraction in the region.
