Political crisis in Tunisia deepens
Tunis: The political turmoil in Tunisia is deteriorating after the assassination of a leading opposition leader this week.
The killing of anti- Islamist leader Chokri Belaid has aroused mass protests and even riots according to latest reports.
The streets of Tunisian capital are engulfed in tear gas, shells, blood and destruction.
Earlier Tunisia’s ruling coalition Ennahda had rejected the initiative by its own prime minister for a non-partisan technocratic government.
In response to the assassination, Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali had proposed a new government of technocrats to guide the country to elections.
The Ennahda Party website quoted Abdel-Hamid Jalasi, vice president of the party, as saying Thursday they disagreed with the prime minister`s move.
He said the country needed political figures in the government from the coalition.
The opposition had welcomed Jebali`s move as a way out of the long-simmering political deadlock in Tunisia.
