Tunisia: Cabinet Meeting - Jebali Requests to Ensure Normal Functioning of State Institutions

Tunis — Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali stressed on Tuesday the need "to ensure that all the state's institutions function normally, by maintaining the pace of services, increasing performance and responding positively and more flexibly to the needs of the population."

Jebali announced that he would meet with President of the Republic Moncef Marzouki on Tuesday afternoon "to see with him the arrangements to be implemented" concerning the line up of the new government, a press statement reads after a cabinet meeting held on Tuesday morning in the government palace, in Kasbah.

The cabinet meeting "studied the present and future situation in the country and took stock of the results of the consultations and contacts that have just taken place with the representatives of the political parties, as part of the formation of a government of national experts," added the same source.
