UPDATE - Tunisia party tells cabinet members to leave government
Nida Tounes urges its government ministers to resign following Monday's cabinet shake-up


By Adil al-Thabti

TUNIS (AA) – Tunisia’s Nida Tounes party has called on its sitting cabinet ministers to withdraw from the country’s coalition government in the wake of a Monday cabinet reshuffle.

In a Thursday statement, the party -- which holds 51 out of 217 seats in parliament -- also urged its MPs not to take part in a proposed parliamentary vote on Monday’s cabinet shake-up.

The Ennahda movement, for its part, Nida Tounes’s coalition partner, condemned what it described as “attempts by certain Nida Tounes leaders to disrupt the positive relationship between our two parties”.

Ennahda also commended Monday’s cabinet reshuffle, which, it said, would “serve to resolve the many economic, social and security challenges currently facing the country”.

The movement, which holds 68 seats in the assembly, went on to voice hope that the recent reshuffle would garner the support of a majority in parliament and the country’s leading political parties.

On Monday, Prime Minister Youssef Chahed, a leading Nida Tounes member, appointed 13 new government ministers in a cabinet reshuffle ostensibly aimed at boosting Tunisia’s troubled economy.
