    Background: Visnews filmed March 6 Tunisia's President Bourguiba addressing the reunion meeting of the Neo Destour Party at Ksar Ellal, marking the end of the 1959 Party Congress which opened on March 2 in Sousse.

    It was in the little village of Ksar Ellal that the Neo Destour party held its first congress in 1934.

    Present at the reunion were M. Mongi Slim, Tunisia's U.N. delegate, M. Masmoudi, Minister of Information, and M. Ladgham, Minister of Defense.

    In his opening speech at the congress on March 2 President Bourguiba emphasized the flexibility of the Neo Destour Party, which - he said - led to the "liberation" of Tunisia.
