Commitment and payment appropriations amount to TND 2. 207 million each.
In response to questions by MPs, First Vice-President of the council and First President of the Administrative Court Mehdi Grissia said the council is working in full independence and neutrality within its prerogatives, as set out in decree no. 11/2022.

It is also tasked with tabling reform proposals to ensure the smooth fonctioning and independence of the judiciary and gives its opinion on legislation on the organisation of justice.
