Tunisia: Cabinet Reshuffle Talks Fail

Tunisian Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali said on Saturday (January 26th) that lengthy consultations on a Tunisian government reshuffle had failed, AFP reported. The Premier said that he would choose a new line-up unless a compromise is found soon.

"We did not agree on a government reshuffle but the negotiations were positive," Jebali said, adding that he still hopes that a "consensus" would emerge.

"It is my duty as prime minister to submit in the next few days a list of government members to the Constituent Assembly for their approval," he added.
