Description

Tunisian lawmakers voted on Saturday to dismiss Prime Minister Habib Essid from office, during a no-confidence ballot in parliament. Essid has been under fire for a lack of progress on a financial reforms package to create growth and jobs. Out of the 191 lawmakers present for the vote, 118 voted to sack Essid. Only three supported him and others abstained. A new premier will likely be named after negotiations within the ruling coalition of four major parties. A change in the cabinet is likely, with a new prime minister. The new government is expected to speed up economic reforms.
