Tunisia’s ruling Islamist party, Ennahda, will allow independent figures to take over the most important ministries in the next government, leader Rached Ghannouchi said yesterday, in a concession to the non-Islamist opposition.

On Friday, president Moncef Marzouki asked interior minister Ali Larayedh to form a government within 15 days, following the resignation of prime minister Hamadi Jebali.
