    Prime Minister Ali Laarayedh announced Friday afternoon the composition of his new ministerial cabinet. The figures, who will head key ministries, are Lotfi Ben Jeddou as interior minister, Nadhir Ben Ammou as justice minister, Othman Jerandi as foreign affairs minister, and Rachid Sabbagh as defense minister.

    In such a way, Ennahdha party met the demands, made by opposition parties and even Ettakatol party from the ruling Troïka, to neutralize the country’s key ministries. The four aforementioned ministers are independents and not affiliated with any political party.

    Noureddine Bhiri, who served as justice minister under former Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali, is to become deputy minister of political affairs.

    Laarayedh mentioned that the main objectives of the newly established government are to enhance security and the rule of law.

    The proposal for the new government is to be submitted to Head of the National Constituent Assembly (NCA) Mustapha Ben Jaafar, who will present it to NCA members for a vote.

    Within three days, the proposed new government must be approved by a majority of NCA members or else President Moncef Marzouki will have to form another ministerial cabinet.

    Talks over a cabinet reshuffle have been ongoing for around three months.
