In July, the Tunisian President Kais Saied declared a state of emergency, dismissing the Prime Minister and suspending the Tunisian parliament. On 24 August, he extended the state of emergency indefinitely, despite the Tunisian Constitution only allowing emergencies up to 1 month long; and on 22 September, he issued a decree that grants him full presidential powers, including the power to amend the constitution.

What are the arguments for and against the actions of the Tunisian President qualifying as a coup.
