The Tunisian revolution of 2011 did not come without fundamental causes, nor was it an accident. Rather, it was the culmination of a long struggle for freedom, dignity and equality. These principles are not only human rights, but closely related human characteristics and fundamental principles for all other rights and freedoms. Therefore, constitutions enacted after the fall of the regime are not expected to be created, but to be adopted and their observance guaranteed. The revolution that led to the overthrow of President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali was sparked when the young revolutionary Mohamed Bouazizi set his body on fire. Their first demand was for the rights and freedoms that had been taken away from the people by the oppression and tyranny of the regime of the time. This demand is about the guarantee of the freedoms guaranteed by the new laws and constitutions in Tunisia after the fall of the regime, as well as the extent of their interest in the application of these rights and their will to apply them in order to satisfy the revolutionaries and restore the fundamental rights and freedoms confiscated by the government before the revolution.
