Ammon News - Tunisian Interior Minister Taoufik Charfeddine says he has resigned due to family reasons as the government cracks down on prominent opposition figures and a campaign against sub-Saharan Africans provokes international ire.

Charfeddine, a close aide of President Kais Saied, told reporters on Friday that he wants to spend more time with his children after the death of his wife, Salwa, last year.

Charfeddine, 54, who had held his post since October 2021, told reporters he wished to thank the president for “his understanding and for allowing me to be relieved of my duties”.
