Carthage — Caretaker Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali said Monday that the announcement of the Cabinet reshuffle scheduled early this week is postponed due to the ongoing negotiations with the different concerned political actors.
Mr. Jebali said, in a statement to the press in Dar Dhiafia in Carthage, that he "continues so far to receive the responses of the different political parties" concerned by consultations.
Besides, the Prime Minister underlined that he will call on the Troika to extend consultations, explaining that he will announce this week "with total transparency" the answers received and the results of the consultations.
Concerning the contribution of the ministers likely to integrate the government in case the elections are held in June, Mr. Jebali underlined that "to be effective, the government requires changes, this will be done regardless of the remaining time for the present government."
In this connection, he said he had insisted that the elections be held "in the shortest time," asserting that he had underlined the need to form a government as of next September to spare the country "instability."
