Ennahda leader says they begin to set up new government

World Bulletin / News Desk

Ennahda Movement's leader Rached Ghannouchi said that efforts would begin rapidly to set up a new government following the resignation of Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali.

Speaking to AA on Wednesday, Ghannouchi said that resignation of Jebali was not the end of the road.

Jebali announced his resignation on Tuesday following failed efforts to create a non-partisan technocratic government. According to Tunisian provisional constitution, president assigns the political party --which has the highest number of seats at parliament-- to set up the government.

Tunisian President Moncef Marzouki called me on the phone and said he would consult me about forming the new government, said Ghannouchi.

Ennahda Movement has the majority at Parliament.

The government has to be set up within 15 days. The existing government will continue its duty within these 15 days in order to prevent any authority vacuum.
