Jebali and Al-Nahda Spar Over Dissolution

From MEI Editor's Blog Thu Feb 7 2013, 21:34:00

Tunisian Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali's announced intention of dissolving the government and forming a technocratic cabinet has been rejected by his own al-Nahda Party, which says he doesn't habe the power to do it. No one seems to know for sure if he does or doesn't; they're still writing the Constitution. But Jebali is al-Nahda's Secretary-General. Does this portend a split in the party, or will Jebali back down, or will the party?

Tomorrow there's a general strike in the offing. Things could go downhill fast, if these issues aren't resolved.
