Tunisia new gov’t faces resistance before ratification vote

By Tarek Amara TUNIS (Reuters) – Tunisia’s Islamist party Ennahda, which holds the second largest number of seats in parliament, said on Sunday it would reject a government proposed last week by Prime Minister-designate Habib Essid, complicating his cabinet’s ratification. Tunisia has been praised for its recent run of free elections, new constitution and politics of compromise between secular and Islamist leaders four years after an uprising overthrew autocrat Zine El-Abidine Ben Ali. “We decided not to approve this government because it does not represent all the political classes and it breaks with the consensual way we have worked recently,” Ennahda leader Sahbi Atig told Reuters after a party meeting on Sunday. Representatives from the leftist Popular Front said they would also reject the new cabinet partly because it contained former officials from Ben Ali’s regime, some of whom they said were suspected of corruption in the past.
