All the parties participating in the national dialogue have called for dissolving the Revolution Protection Leagues (LPR) expect for Ennahdha Movement which insists on keeping them," Al-Amen Party President Lazhar Bali declared on Tuesday.

"Apart from Ennahdha, all parties agreed on the need to fight violence committed by these leagues," he said.

"Today, we made a step backward," he regretted on the sidelines of the dialogue sessions, specifying that "this position will weaken us, especially as Tunisian General Labour Union (UGTT)'s dialogue will start on Thursday."

"The dialogue between parties also led to an agreement on the need to fight salafist violence and the imperative for the government to take repressive measures against any act of violence perpetrated by these groups," he added.

According to Ennahdha's Sahbi Atig, "LPR dissolution is within the jurisdiction of Justice and not political parties," reminding that "the Movement called for prosecuting all organisations engaging in violence."

Dialogue between parties was attended by the ruling coalition, the Republican Party (RP), the Democratic Alliance, Al-Moubadara Party and Al-Amen Party.
