The Reform Front Party (El Isla) is a Salafist political party in Tunisia.[3] It is the first Salafi political party of the country,[2] though the Salafist Justice and Development Party has since been licensed.[4] The party was established in 2012.[2] The party calls for the annulment of the Tunisian Code of Personal Status.[4]
