The Ennahdha party’s Shura Council has chosen three potential candidates from a list of 10 to replace former Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali, Zoubeir Chhoudi, a member of the Council, told Tunisia Live Thursday.

“The Shura Council will submit its three candidates to its executive leadership, and they will decide on one candidate,” Chhoudi said.

Jebali handed in his resignation Tuesday after announcing the failure of his plan to create a technocratic government.

Chhoudi added that the decision of the executive leadership depends on negotiations taking place today with Jebali. If the former prime minister refuses to head the new government that is being created, then the executive leadership will immediately announce a new prime minister to fill the position.

Legally-speaking, Jebali can return to his position, or he can be reassigned to form a new government, but this depends on the extent to which he and Ennahdha are able to come to an agreement on his initiative to form an apolitical, technocratic government.

Jebali’s call for a technocratic government was an initiative to alleviate the political crisis caused by February 6 assassination of opposition politician Chokri Belaid.
