Installing the AANOA in Tunisia
Following the Constitutive General Assembly of the Association of African National Olympic Academies (Tunis 2008) and after a long waiting period that has yielded no results despite a marathon of contacts and attempts to accelerate formalization process of the presence of AANOA in Tunisia, which was frozen for formalization of the independent non-Olympic reasons beyond our control, that goal was reached after the Tunisian revolution of 14 January 2011, following the efforts of the President of the AANOA with the competent Tunisian authorities, which resulted in the promulgation of Presidential Decree No. 1104 of 4 August 2011 relating to the installation of the AANOA in Tunisia and its publication in the Official Journal of the Tunisian Republic No. 60 .
According to the Organic Law No. 93-80 of 26/07/1993 regarding the Non Governmental Organization (NGO) facility in Tunisia, since AANOA has the status of a NGO and has consequently the legal personality and legal situation in Tunisia allowing to start its activities and achieving its objectives.
