Tunisian Prime Minister-designated Ali Larayedh said on Tuesdy he did not know when he would be able to announce the formation of a new government, with only days left to finish the task.
Larayedh was speaking on the radio after parliamentary speaker Mustapha Ben Jaafar said in Paris he expects a new government to be formed "in the next 24 to 48 hours", even if disputes remain over portfolios and the political platform.
"I don't know," Larayedh said when asked by Shems-FM radio when the new team would be put together, as a Friday deadline looms. "Soon, God willing."
