Tunisian PM Jebali quits

Feb. 19, 2013 8:19 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 20, 2013 9:31 A.M.)
TUNIS (Reuters) -- Tunisian Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali resigned on Tuesday after his attempt to form a government of technocrats and end a political crisis failed.

"I vowed that if my initiative did not succeed, I would resign and ... I have already done so," Jebali told a news conference after meeting with President Moncef Marzouki.

Jebali had proposed forming a cabinet of apolitical technocrats to end protests and political turmoil caused by the the assassination of secular opposition politician Chokri Belaid.
