Tunisia: vote of confidence for the new Chahed’s team

At the end of a day of deliberation, the Assembly of the Representatives of the People in Tunisia invested on the evening of September 10th, the ministers who have made their entry to the government of Youssef Chahed or changed their sectors. Notably, the return of Ridha Chalghoum to Finance (position he held until 2010) and the replacement of Fadhel Abdelkefi, Minister of Investment and International Cooperation, by Zied Laadhari (Ennahda).

In their speeches, however, several MEPs questioned the need for a reshuffle just over a year after the start of the previous one, when the country needed stability, insisting that the fight against corruption will continue with a clear strategy and call for the local elections to be held as soon as possible, scheduled to take place in December, but whose postponement seems more and more likely. As a reminder, Youssef Chahed, 41, was appointed Prime Minister on August 27, 2016.
