The inflation rate in the country was recorded as 9.8 percent in November, which has been a new record in ten years. Food prices, including meat, eggs, vegetables, and fruits, have risen by more than 15%. Many Tunisians in the event expressed that avoiding home decorating expenditures owing to life stress.
