Tunisian President Saied Swears-in New Cabinet

Tunisia’s new Cabinet has been sworn in at the Presidential Palace of Carthage just a couple of weeks after the appointment of Najla Bouden as the country’s first female prime minister.

Earlier, the presidency said that Saied had approved the new government selected by Bouden.

Eight out of the new government’s 23 ministerial portfolios were given to women.

Following the naming of the new Cabinet, the Prime Minister, Najla Bouden stated that her government is committed to improving government services and citizens’ living conditions as well as restoring the international community’s confidence in the North African country.

On July 25, Tunisian President Kais Saied sacked the government, suspended parliament, and assumed executive authority. While he insists that his exceptional measures are meant to save the country, critics have continued to accuse him of carrying out a coup.

Tunisia has been seen as the only country that succeeded in carrying out a democratic transition among Arab countries which witnessed popular revolutions toppling ruling regimes, including Egypt, Libya, and Yemen.

Hundreds of protesters have continued to rally in Tunisia’s capital to protest against President Kais Saied’s move to seize governing powers.

Demonstrators gathered over the weekend in the centre of Tunis under a heavy police presence to demand his resignation, chanting, “The people want the fall of the coup”.
