Nadia Akacha, chief of staff to Tunisian President Kaïs Saïed, announced on Monday her resignation for “fundamental differences of opinion”.
In a post on his Facebook account, Akacha pointed out: “ I decided to quit. Fundamental differences of opinion on Tunisia’s interests have emerged and I believe it is my duty to step down”.
Quoted by the Tunisian press agency “TAP”, a source at the Presidency of the Tunisian Republic confirmed the resignation of Nadia Akacha from her position as director of cabinet to President Saïed.
Akacha, 41, a lawyer by training, was appointed legal adviser to the presidential cabinet at the end of 2019 before becoming in January 2020 the director of President Saïed’s cabinet.
