Tunisia: Echaab Movement Will Not Participate in Any Government Formed On Basis of Quota Policy, Brahmi

Carthage — Echaab Movement Secretary-General Mohamed Brahmi said his party will not provide any political support to any government formed on the basis of a quota policy.

Brahmi made this statement after his meeting with President Moncef Marzouki on Thursday.

He stressed the importance of national dialogue as the only way out of the crisis in the country, "otherwise we will not get out of this spiral," he added.

Mr. Brahmi, who was accompanied by member of the movement Zouhair Maghzaoui, expressed hope that political classes, espacially Ennahdha, would take into account the critical situation of the country and take part in national dialogue.

He also said that Ennahdha movement is not reappointing Hamadi Jebali as Prime Minister.

He added, "Had the party's leaders accepted, from the beginning the conditions set by Jebali, they would not have aborted his initiative."
