Tunisian Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali will meet with President Moncef Marzouki on Tuesday (February 19th) to pursue "another solution" to the country's political crisis, AFP reported.
Jebali, who was left out on a limb Monday after his proposals for a non-partisan government were rebuffed by his own ruling Islamist Ennahda party, said a new formula should emerge "in the coming days".
Jebali first floated his initiative in the wake of public outrage over the February 6th killing of opposition figure Chokri Belaid. He had vowed to step down if his controversial proposal to form an apolitical administration were thwarted.
But Jebali on Monday insisted that despite its failure, his initiative had at least succeeded in "getting everyone around a table" and in preventing Tunisia "from falling into the unknown".
