Tunisia: Ennahdha Shura Council Calls for Carrying On Consultations On Cabinet Reshuffle

Tunis — The Ennahdha Shura Council called on President of the movement Rached Ghannouchi and Secretary-General of the movement and Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali to carry on consultations with all the national parties on the expected cabinet reshuffle.

Held last week-end, the Shura Council requested that the consultations be led "on the basis of extending political participation in perfect harmony with the Revolution claims."

"The expected cabinet reshuffle should boost efficiency of the government and lead the country towards the elections in optimum conditions," a Shura Council statement underlines."

The dialogue does not only concern the participation in the government but also should reach a consensus on great issues related to the transition process, the aim being to establish a political and social climate which guarantees the organisation of transparent and democratic elections in the shortest terms," the statement adds.

The Shura Council underlined the need to focus on the priorities of the transition period notably energising security, fight against corruption, job creation, achievement of development projects and mastering prices.

The Shura Council also notes the need to establish authorities in charge of the judiciary, media and the elections and set a precise schedule for the next elections.
