Minister resigns


The Minister for Administrative Reform, Mohammed Abbou, a member of the president’s Congress for the Republic, has resigned, saying that he was given insufficient authority by Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali to fight corruption.

The prime minister, who comes from the Ennahda Movement (Renaissance Party), has been in recent conflict with the president and other members of his government. Two senior advisers recently resigned their posts as well, which suggests a deepening crisis within the parties making up the current government.
