Spokesperson for the Tunisian Popular Front and President of Tunisian Workers' Communist Party Hamma Hammami on Monday said, "Some internal and external parties don't want the revolution to succeed."

"Some internal and external parties don't want the revolution to succeed. As the Popular Front we are against France, US or any Arab country to interfere with our internal affairs" Hammami told AA in response to French Minister of Internal Affairs Manuel Valls' statements in regards to Tunisia.

Valls had said on Europe 1 radio on Thursday that Belaid was "one of the democrats and we must support these democrats so that the values of the Jasmine Revolution are not betrayed. There is an "Islamic fascism" rising everywhere, but this obscurantism must, of course, be condemned because it denies the democracy for which the Libyan, Tunisian and Egyptian people have fought."

Hammami also stated that the country needed a transitional government during the crisis.

Protesters denounced Valls' remarks, claiming they showed that France is interfering in Tunisia's internal affairs. Demonstrators gathered in front of the National Theater on Tunis' main boulevard, waving flags of the Ennahda party and shouting "Get out, France."
