Unity government feasible in Tunisia: minister
A national unity government would be feasible and "totally normal" for Tunisia, foreign minister Kamel Morjane told French radio Friday.
Speaking on French radio station Europe 1, Morjane made a significant nod towards the leader of the opposition Democratic Progressive Party, Mohammed Nejib Chebbi.
"Given the conduct of people like Mr. Nejib Chebbi, I think it is feasible, even totally normal" to have a power-sharing deal, Morjane said.
After nearly a month of deadly riots that started as a protest against unemployment, Ben Ali on Thursday promised not seek another term after 2014, and to liberalise the political system.
"The president is a man of his word," Morjane said.
