Essebsi accepts new ministers after earlier rejection


Tunisian President Beji Caid Essebsi announced Thursday accepting the new ten ministers he had previously rejected, saying he was ready to swear in the ministers named in the reshuffle.

Essebsi earlier rejected the reshuffle announced by Prime Minister Youssef Chahed, saying that he had not been consulted beforehand.

The Tunisian president said he had no problem with the prime minister, adding that he only objected to the way Chahed handled the reshuffle. Essebsi told reporters he would swear in the ministers if parliament approved them.


Chahed kept the finance, foreign and the interior ministries unchanged.
