After four months of political wrangling following October’s parliamentary election, Tunisia finally has a new government, led by Prime Minister Elyès Fakhfakh. 

The latest fact sheet from POMED, “Four Months in the Making: Tunisia’s New Government,” outlines Tunisia’s new cabinet and the composition of its parliament—both of which will face unprecedented challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic, on top of continuing economic troubles and an ongoing democratic transition now entering its ninth year.

For more on the government’s formation and its approach so far, be sure to read our Expert Q&A with Nonresident Senior Fellow Sharan Grewal, “Better Late than Never: Tunisia’s New Government Takes the Reins.”
