Hamadi Jebali, Tunisia's newly appointed Prime Minister

On the heels of Moncef Marzouki’s election as the republic’s president, Hamadi Jebali, Secretary General of Ennahda Party, was appointed as Tunisia’s Prime Minister this morning. Jebali is expected to announce his cabinet within the next few days. Additionally, in a statement released this morning by the new president Marzouki, Jebali has also been tasked to form the new government. Jebali will carry out negotiations on the formation of the government in 21 days starting from December 14th, 2011.

Jebali is then due to submit the results of his work to President Marzouki. The new government will begin its work the day it is appointed. In the meantime, the current government will continue operations as caretaker government, Imed Daimi, spokesperson of the Congress for the Republic (CPR) party announced on National Tunisian Television on December 14th, 2011.

While Ennahda is poised to take most ministerial posts, some porfolios are also expected to be taken up by the Congress for the Republic (CPR) and other independent parties.
