Tunisia’s president names new govt 11 weeks after power grab


Issued on:

Tunisia’s President Kais Saied has appointed a new government by decree, 11 weeks after he fired the last one, the presidency said Monday. 

“The president of the Republic has issued a decree naming the head of government and its members,” the presidency said in a statement, shortly before state television broadcast a swearing-in ceremony.

Saied sacked the prime minister, suspended parliament and granted himself judicial powers in a July 25 power grab that opponents have termed a coup.
