During a session held this morning in the Tunisian Parliament, Deputy Khaled Shawkat asked Parliament Speaker Mohamed Nasser to consider moving the remaining sessions to the Great Hall in the House of Advisors, located elsewhere in the same compound, following concerns over bad smells wafting through the air in the hall.

Shawkat complained that bad odors were emanating from drainage channels in the hall where parliamentary sessions are usually held.

“There is a very unpleasant and foul odor, that may even be toxic, resulting from a defect in the drainage channels and we are no longer able to put up with these odors," Shawkat said.

News reporters assigned to cover the activities of the Tunisian parliament sessions also noted that the bad smell had reached the space allocated to them in the building.
