The following statement was previously published on the Black First Land First website:
Black First Land First (BLF) congratulates Kaïs Saied, on winning the Tunisian presidential election runoff by an impressive 70% of the vote.
We note that the failing Tunisian economy was a key factor that sparked the 2011 revolution and it was also the main factor of your election ticket. The election result indicating that about 90% of 18 to 25 year olds voted for you, is therefore testimony to the trust that the youth have in you, as the President of the country, to radically transform the economy towards the attainment of a truly equalitarian society.
We wish the Tunisian people success in building a new Tunisia under your leadership.
Long live President Kaïs Saied! Long live the Tunisian people!
