Over a thousand Tunisians rallied in the capital Tunis on Sunday calling for an end to what they describe as an ongoing power grab from their president Kais Saied.

The protest was organised by a movement named “Citizens Against the Coup” along with the Islamic inspired Ennahdha Party, which has dominated Tunisia’s post-revolution politics and the recent dissolved parliament.
