Tunisian press syndicate says state TV bars political parties (Al Jazeera)

Tunisian state television has barred all political parties from entering its buildings or taking part in talk shows in a serious setback for press freedoms, the country’s press syndicate has said.

Mehdi Jlassi, the syndicate head, told the Reuters news agency on Tuesday that the apparent ban had been in force since President Kais Saied seized most powers in July in moves that his foes have branded a coup.
