Tunisia: Ennahdha Denies Any Agreement On Ministries' Neutrality

Tunis — President of Ennahdha Press Office Nejib Gharbi, Saturday, denied an agreement on the neutrality of ministries.

"The movement has reservations on the neutrality of ministries," he said in a statement to TAP.

Mr. Gharbi also indicated: "speaking of technocrats and political neutrality does not make sense at this time and is mere political speculation."

President of the National Board of the Congress for the Republic (CPR) Chokri Yaacoub said an agreement has been reached between Ennahdha and CPR on the neutrality of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. He added, however, that there is still a problem in the Ministry of Justice.

Mr. Yaacoub was speaking to the media at the end of the extraordinary meeting of the political bureau of CPR and shortly before the start of its exceptional national board meeting.

The agenda of the board's works includes essentially consultations within the Troika, the government reshuffle and the roadmap of CPR for the coming period.
