Tunisia chooses new PM to replace Islamist gov't

Published: 12.14.13, 23:22 / Israel News

The industry minister has been chosen as Tunisia's next prime minister, set to replace the Islamist-led government with technocrats in what's been a faltering transition to democracy.


The head of the powerful UGTT union, the main mediator, announced the choice Saturday night of 50-year-old Mehdi Jomaa. He won the vote in a contentious forum of political parties, dubbed the "national dialogue," which began meeting in October. Jomaa has three weeks to form a government. (AP)
