TUNIS - The head of Tunisia's constitution committee delivered the draft of a new constitution to the president Kais Saied on Monday, the presidency said.

Saied, who seized executive power last year, dissolved parliament and ruled by decree - a move opponents called a coup - said some chapters in the draft constitution needed amendments and revisions.

The president intends to put the new constitution to a referendum on July 25, though the opposition has said it will boycott the plebiscite.
