Tunisia`s former premier and Ennahda secretary general Hamadi Jebali announced on Facebook Thursday that he was stepping down from the Islamist party as he no longer agreed with its policies.
Hamadi Jebali resigned after Ennahda, his own political party, opposed his efforts to resolve the country`s political crisis.
Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali made the announcement in a televised address at the end of the day that saw clashes and protests over the assassination of Chokri Belaid, a prominent leftist and anti-Islamist politician.
