Tunis (AFP) — Tunisia’s new constitution will not be adopted before February 2013, the head of the drafting committee said on Tuesday, after earlier announcing that it would be delayed until April. “I believe that in all reality there can be no final reading of the constitution before February 2013,” Habib Kheder, who is also an MP and member of the ruling Islamist party Ennahda, told Tunisian radio station Mosaique FM. “There can be no hastening,” he added. Kheder had said on Monday that the final draft of the new national charter would be voted on in parliament “at the end of April.” The government had previously insisted it would meet an October deadline for ratifying the constitution, in order to hold planned general elections in March next year. Kheder has declined to comment on whether he now expects the elections to take place on schedule, saying on Monday that was “the responsibility of the government.”
