French pro-Tunisian dictatorship minister resigns

This video is called Political Opression and Corruption under Tunisian Dictatorship.

On the same day as the Tunisian Prime Minister, a relic from the Ben Ali dictatorship days, resigns, a French supporter of that dictatorship, Ms Michele Alliot-Marie resigns. I hope her Prime Minister Fillon, involved in an Egypt dictatorship scandal, and her President Sarkozy, involved in too many scandals to mention here, follow suit. And that the whole Rightist French government will collapse.

Embattled French foreign minister resigns

French Foreign Minister Michele Alliot Marie resigned Sunday, saying that public scrutiny of her for close ties to the former Tunisian regime could give the appearance of a weakened French foreign policy.

Alliot Marie has been criticized for taking a private plane during the Christmas holidays to Tunisia during a popular uprising there. The plane belonged to Tunisian businessman Aziz Miled.

a crony of dictator Ben Ali

The controversy gave the false impression that France was somehow compromised in the Tunisian affair, and she resigned for the distractions to stop, she said in a letter to President Nicolas Sarkozy. …

There was no immediate comment from Sarkozy’s office whether he would accept the resignation.

    TUNISIA: Interim President Fousad Mebazza appointed the country’s former foreign minister as PM today, after Mohamed Ghannouchi resigned on Sunday in the face of militant protests.

    Mr Mebazza asked Beji Caid Sebsi, a former foreign minister under the country’s first president Habib Bourguiba, to take the reins.

    Protesters had accused Mr Ghannouchi of being too close to the former regime and for failing to enact progressive reforms.
