As political parties in Tunisia begin the rounds of drumming up support for July, the Ennadha party didn't quite get the welcome that they were looking for in Hammamet or in Kelibia this weekend as thousands gathered in front of their meetings to protest and shout "Degage!"
Mr Ghannouchi has stoked fear in some Tunisians by rumours that he would like to introduce Sharia Law into Tunisia, of which he has catagorically denied! He is on record as saying that it would cure Tunisia's growing rate of unmarried women if men were allowed 4 wives! He has stirred up a hornet's nest amongst hoteliers who were part of the crowd protesting, with his views on banning alcohol and introducing Islamic-style holidays, concentrating on Muslim countries which are so far away from Tunisia, they would not necessarily choose the country as their first destination!
Mr Ghannouchi's message is that people are just trying to stir up trouble!
