Yassine Ibrahim is a prominent Tunisian businessman, who served briefly as Minister of Transport in Beji Caid Essebsi’s interim government. He is currently a member of the opposition Al Joumhouri party.

Yassine Ibrahim

Ibrahim is a French-Tunisian, born in 1966 in Mahdia. He graduated from the Ecole Centrale de Paris in 1989 and began his business career with Capgemini, where he worked for 8 years in software management of capital markets and information technology. He then founded his own consulting company, which he sold in 2002 to French company Teamlog, a European leader in publishing software. In 2005 he became CEO of Ubitrade.

Before his appointment to the interim government in January 2011, Ibrahim was president of the Global Trading division of Sungard.

Ibrahim resigned from the interim government in June 2011 to devote time to the party activities of Afek Tunes, which he became Secretary-General of in July that year.

However, in 2012 Afek Tunes merged with the Progressive Democratic Party and the Republican Party to form a ‘training Republican Party’, which Ibrahim became Executive Secretary of. He resigned from this new party in July 2013, citing the failure of the new party to form an effective union of democratic forces. Following this, in August, he announced the official return of Afek Tunes, which he would be confirmed president of in a National Council vote a month later.
