Nidaa Tounes. "There are parts outside the official leadership of Nidaa Tounes that influence the decision of the party, and who are engaged in a conspiracy to weaken the UPL" the statement announcing the freeze declared. The UPL announcement did leave open the possibility of resuming its activities, once it had received a "clarification of the official position of the leaders of Nidaa Tounes". According to the UPL's statement Nidaa Tounes is in violation of an agreement between coalition members not to poach or accept each other's migratory deputies. The agreement in question was evoked by Nidaa Tounes itself when it was losing its own deputies in January to the Al-Horra parliamentary bloc formed by former Nidaa Tounes secretary general Mohsen Marzouk over a feud within Nidaa Tounes over the role of President Beji Caid Essebsi's son, Hafedh Caid Essebsi, in the party's leadership. The coalition currently includes the UPL as well as Ennahda, Nidaa Tounes and Afek Tounes. Last week the ARP formalized the three deputies' adhesion to Nidaa Tounes. With the three former UPL members included Nidaa Tounes now holds 59 seats in the ARP behind Ennahda's 69 seats, the UPL which now holds twelve seats remains ahead of Afek Tounes and its ten seats.
