Tunisian President Kais Saied assured his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron that a new government will be formed in the coming days.
Said told Macron on Saturday that a national dialogue will start soon to resolve the crisis in Tunisia, according to the French presidency.
This came during Macron’s discussion of the political situation in Tunisia with Saied.
Assigning Najla Boden
It is noteworthy that, last Wednesday, the Tunisian president commissioned Najla Bouden, 63, who is not known in the political scene, to form a new government, more than two months after taking over the authorities, dismissing the prime minister and suspending the work of the parliament headed by Rashid Ghannouchi.
Boden’s government team is likely to be devoid of party representation, with a strong presence of women and youth.

It is noteworthy that this is the first time in Tunisia’s history that a woman has been appointed to the head of the executive authority to carry out reforms, the most important of which is fighting corruption.
The Renaissance is rising
In addition, the Ennahda movement and its leader, Rashid Ghannouchi, and allied parties are calling for the resumption of the work of Parliament, in an escalation of the political crisis in the country.

Following this escalation, supporters of Saeed’s decisions are preparing to go out on Sunday, in demonstrations in support of the president’s exceptional measures and to move forward with political reforms to end 10 years of chaos, political conflicts and rampant corruption, and put an end to the economic and social crises in which the country has plunged.
