Top Tunisian Ministers Are Fired after New President Elected

Tuesday, 29 October 2019 02:39 PM

TUNIS, Tunisia (AP) — Tunisia's prime minister has fired the foreign and defense ministers, less than two weeks since Kais Saied was elected the new president of the North African country.

According to a statement from the government presidency Tuesday, Defense Minister Abdelkarim Zbidi and Foreign Minister Khemaies Jhinaoui were dismissed by Prime Minister Youssef Chahed.

The two ministers were seen as being close to former President Beji Caid Essebsi, who died in June. Saied and Essebsi didn't see eye to eye politically.

Economic Diplomacy Minister Hatem Ferjani was also fired.

Intense negotiations are currently taking place for the formation of a new government.
