Moreoever, the geopolitical context does not enable the organization of the event with serenity.
Following the various official meetings held this week in Tunis, NPO, by mutual agreement with the Ministry of Sport and Tourism, the FTA and FTM, has taken the decision to postpone the Rally of Tunisia 2013 and today build a project of Future.
Registered participants were called today by the NPO team and mostly decided to postpone their entries to OiLibya Rally of Morocco. Few of them unavailable this fall, will be fully refunded in the coming days.

I'm a bit confused, here

I'm reading:

La polémique et l’imbroglio nés, d’une part, des revendications de NPO à l’égard du National Automobile Club de Tunisie (NACT) et de l’organisation du Rallye de Tunisie, d’autre part, de la constitution de la Fédération Tunisienne de l’Automobile (FTA) et de l’organisation par NPO, sous l’égide de cette nouvelle fédération, d’un rallye du même nom, crée une situation juridique confuse qui ne permet pas, en l’état, à M. Cyril NEVEU de donner suite à la demande qui lui était faite par le NACT de prendre part à la promotion du rallye TUNISIE EXPRESS 2013".

So, it's a NO for both Rallyes in Tunisia?
