Tunisia president names Najla Bouden as country’s first female PM

Tunisian President Kais Saied has named Najla Bouden Romdhane, a little-known university engineer who worked with the World Bank, as prime minister on Wednesday nearly two months after he seized most powers in a move his foes call a coup.

“The President of the Republic Kais Saied charged Najla Bouden with forming a government as quickly as possible,” says a statement from his office published on Facebook.

Saied dismissed the previous prime minister, suspended parliament, and assumed wide executive powers in July, and has been under growing domestic and international pressure to form a new government.
