Mustapha Ben Jaafar is the elected President of the National Constituent Assembly of Tunisia. Under his chairmanship, the National Constituent Assembly adopted the first democratic constitution in the Arab world on January 26, 2014. He is the president of the Democratic Forum for Labour and Liberties (FDTL – Ettakatol), a political party he founded in 1994. In January 2013, he was elected Honorary President of the Socialist International, after decades as one of the main figures of the democratic resistance to the dictatorship in Tunisia.
