The Tunisian Parliament votes 134 to 72 to reject a cabinet proposed by Prime Minister-designate Habib Jemli. President Kais Saied has 10 days to select someone else to build a new government.
Tunisian President Kais Saied sacks Mohamed al-Dahach as head of the national television network and installs a temporary replacement, following an incident in the afternoon when al-Dahach forbade a group of journalists and human rights advocates from appearing on a show allegedly on orders from the military.
The army surrounds the parliament and prevents its Speaker Rached Ghannouchi from entering. President Kais Saied earlier dismissed Prime Minister Hichem Mechichi and froze the activities of the parliament for 30 days.
Tunisian President Kais Saied, in a televised speech, announces the dismissal of Prime Minister Hichem Mechichi and the suspension of the Assembly of the Representatives of the People, and also assumes executive authority. The opposition calls the actions a coup d'état.
Tunisia's prime minister Mohamed Ghannouchi promises in a TV interview to leave politics "in the shortest possible timeframe" after elections to be held following President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali's recent fall.
