Tunisian Cabinet Approves On Equality In Inheritance

By – Mohamed Nabil

The Tunisian cabinet has approved on Friday the law of gender equality in inheritance, to be discussed in the parliament before being effective in the country, according to Al-Arabiya.

The Tunisian president, Beji Caid Essebsi, had suggested the law in August 2017, on the occasion of the national women’s day.

The law gives women and men an equal inheritance, disagreeing with the Qura’anic verse stating that males should inherit what two females should.

The law will also ensure freedom of choice between following the constitution or Sharia “Islamic law”.
