Tunisia's Ennahda to name leader for parliament speaker
Ennahda won 52 seats in 217-member parliament in last month's parliamentary polls

TUNIS (AA) - Tunisia's moderate Ennahda movement will nominate its leader Rachid Ghannouchi as speaker of the new parliament, according to a group member.

"The movement's Shura Council has decided to nominate Ghannouchi for the post of parliament speaker," Mohsen al-Sudani told Anadolu Agency on Sunday.

He said the council has reiterated the movement's right to appoint the new prime minister.

Ennahda swept last month's parliamentary election in Tunisia, winning 52 seats of the 217-member parliament.

The new parliament is set to convene on Wednesday for the first time.
