Tunisian PM insists he will form technocrat cabinet

Tunisian Prime Minister Hamadi Jabali reiterated on Friday his intention to form a non-partisan technocratic cabinet following the assassination of an opposition politician, despite objections from his own Islamist party.


"I insist on my decision to form a technocratic government," he told reporters, saying this would not require the approval of the National Constituent Assembly. "This government is ready." (Reuters)
