Ennahda Movement yesterday called on Prime Minister-designate Hichem Mechichi to form a government of “national political unity”.
This came in a brief statement to a source familiar with the Executive Office of the Ennahda movement following a meeting of the office that continued until the early hours of yesterday morning.
The source, who preferred to remain anonymous, said: “The movement wishes success for Mechichi in his mission.”
He added that the movement wanted to form a “government of national political unity” that would respond to the aspirations of Tunisians.
On Saturday, Tunisian President Kais Saied announced the appointment of Mechichi to form a government within a period not exceeding a month, in accordance with Article 89 of the Constitution, starting from Sunday.
Mechichi succeeds Elyes Fakhfakh, who resigned as prime minister earlier this month amid political tensions.
