Afek Tounes will support the new governmental team led by Youssef Chahed, he affirmed to TAP.

This is the 10th government since the January 14 Revolution and the 4th after the 2014 elections.

In turn, the Political Bureau of the Free Patriotic Union (UPL) decided on Sunday to give confidence to the new government team in the vote due on Monday in the House of People’s Representatives (HPR), according to a statement of the party .

The Bureau said in a statement issued after a meeting with members of its parliamentary group held on September 9 and 10, that it was a “last chance vote” for the current system stating that in case of failure the UPL will be the first to campaign for the holding of new legislative elections.

For its part, the National Council of the Workers’ Party (one of the component of the Popular Front) decided not to vote confidence in the new government proposed by Prime Minister Youssef Chahed.

The Workers’ party spokesman Jilani Hammami said in a statement to the press on Sunday at the 3rd session of the party’s National Council that, like the other components of the PF, the Workers’ Party will not vote for confidence in the proposed government “for lack of confidence in its ability to face the major challenges facing the country, including the economic crisis and the deterioration of the social situation.
