ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the news briefs published in this issue of the journal. The government's National Convention, which is tasked with drafting a new constitution as a prelude to elections as a possible way out of the country's political deadlock, was supposed to resume its deliberations after a period of recess in February. Another article focuses on loans and reforms issued by International Monetary Fund. While the economy is suffering from the absence of Western aid and low levels of investment, it is not completely starved of external resources.
