Tunisia

No confidence vote in PM expected


Published

Around 100 members of the Constituent Assembly have announced that they are going to call a motion of no confidence in Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali.

The move comes after the prime minister allowed the extradition of former Libyan Prime Minister Baghdadi Mahmoudi without the knowledge of the president. Tunisian Law requires the president to be aware of and to approve any such extradition order.

The extradition has split the government in Tunisia in half with the movers of the no confidence motion requiring signatures from one third (73) of the 217 members of the Constituent Assembly.
