Tunisia's former prime minister, Hamadi Jebali, has tendered his resignation as the secretary-general of the country's ruling Ennahda Movement.

In a statement on his official Facebook page, Jebali said he had tendered his resignation to the movement's leaders, citing both "objective and subjective" reasons.

However, he said there would be "no use or importance" in stating his reasons for the decision, while stressing his respect for Ennahda's "traditions and rules."

"I believe my decision could be my contribution to supporting a new class of leadership with a generation of qualified members, which the movement boasts at all levels," Jebali added.

He also dismissed reports that he would establish or join a new political party.

Jebali served as the Arab Spring country's premier from December 2011 to March 2013, when he resigned following the assassination of opposition leader Chokri Belaid.
