Tunisia's new premier Mehdi Jomaa took office on Friday to lead a caretaker government until elections this year, the state news agency said, after the ruling party resigned in a deal to complete the transition.

Jomaa will head a non-partisan cabinet appointed after compromise between the Ennahda and its opponents to end months of crisis three years after Tunisia's uprising against autocrat Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali.
