    (ANSAmed) - TUNISIA, 15 OCT - The decision by Tunisia's major political parties to stage presidential and legislative elections on 23 June 2013 has sparked angry protests in the country. Hundreds of people gathered outside the Bardo Museum to register their disgust at the "troika" (Ennahdha, Ettakatol and congress) decision, which they see as a betrayal of the revolutionary values that unseated Ben Ali. The agreement between the three parties will accord wider power to the President of the future regime than those held now.
