Tunisia has obtained the "Partner for Local Democracy" status, from the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities at its 37th Session in October 2019. This status offers the Council of Europe’s neighbouring countries an ideal platform for dialogue and institutional contacts with their European counterparts.

The Tunisian delegation comprises 4 representatives and 4 substitutes who may sit alongside Congress members and contribute to the debates during sessions – albeit without the right to vote – and to the work of its Monitoring, Current Affairs and Governance committees.
