The Al Watania group considers, in its statement, that its association with the commission of investigation into the conflict of interest related to the Prime Minister was illegal insofar as it took place in reaction to the protest against the decision to expel the party and following the refusal of the the Free Destourain Party (LDP) group to participate.
