Tunisian PM resigns after failing to form new cabinet

Tunisian Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali enters the presidential palace in Tunis on Tuesday to announce his resignation from his post. The decision comes after the PM's attempt to end a political stand-off by forming a government of technocrats failed. Jebali had proposed to form the new cabinet to quell turmoil caused by the assassination of secular opposition politician Chokri Belaid on February 6. After a meeting with President Moncef Marzouki, Jebali spoke to the press. (SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) TUNISIAN PRIME MINISTER HAMADI JEBALI, SAYING: "The resignation of the prime minister and failure of this initiative does not mean the failure of Tunisia, it does not mean the failure of the revolution, God willing." Jebali said he would not lead another government without assurances on the timing of fresh elections and a new constitution.
