Tunisia’s parliament speaker Rached Ghannouchi has retained his post after a no-confidence vote session failed to secure the required number of votes on Thursday.
“A total of 133 members of parliament took part in the vote. 97 deputies voted against Ghannouchi, 16 voted in favor of him and 18 votes were annuled,” said the second vice-president of the parliament, Tarek Ftiti at a plenary session.
Under the Tunisian constitution, the adoption of the no-confidence motion in the parliament’s speaker requires an absolute majority of 109 votes out of 217.
Ghannouchi is Tunisia’s Ennahda party leader.
