The Prime Minister of Tunisia announced the reform and reshuffling of the cabinet with the change of 11 ministers.

Iran Press/Africa: "In a way, the cabinet has been reformed so that the government independence is safe and in line with the constitutional institutions," Hichem Mechichi said in a statement on Saturday evening.

Hichem Mechichi also stated that the start of necessary reforms in the Tunisian economy is one of the most important challenges of the next phase.

Only four months and a few days have passed since the inauguration of the cabinet led by Hichem Mechichi in Tunisia.

On July 26, Tunisian President Qais Saeed appointed then-Tunisian Interior Minister Hichem Mechichi to form a new government.

Former Tunisian Prime Minister Elyes Fakhfakh was accused of corruption and resigned on July 16.

Tunisia has been facing political and security crises since 2013, most notably in political assassinations and terrorist acts.
