In two recent TV interviews, former Tunisian President Moncef Marzouki talked about his disappointment in the outcome of the Arab Spring revolution in his country. Speaking on Al-Jazeera on September 16, he said that the "rosy" image of Tunisia as a successful democracy was "propaganda that has nothing to do with reality." Speaking on BBC on September 22, Marzouki said that "what we are witnessing now is the return of the old regime," accusing President Beji Caid Essebsi of "conspiring against the revolution from day one."
