TUNIS - Tunisia's interim prime minister said on Friday he would appoint a new government in two days, the third caretaker administration since the overthrow of veteran leader Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali in January.

"In two days I will present my new government to the interim president", Beji Caid Sebsi told a news conference.

"Our priority is to restore the prestige of the state ... the priority is security," he added.

Tunisia has been struggling to restore stability since Ben Ali was toppled on Jan. 14 by mass street protests.
