Tunisia’s parliament is scheduled to hold a vote of confidence on Prime Minister Elyes Fakhfakh’s recently proposed government on Wednesday, February 26. Fakhfakh announced his cabinet on Wednesday, February 19, after reaching an agreement with the Ennada political party. The prime minister has been attempting to form a government since legislative elections took place in October 2019, where Ennada won the most seats but failed to secure a majority.
