TUNIS - Tunisia's Islamist government has agreed to resign after negotiations that start next week with secular opponents to form a caretaker administration and prepare for elections, a senior ruling party official said on Saturday.

The negotiations aim to end weeks of crisis involving the Islamist-led coalition and secular opposition parties that has threatened to scuttle the transition to democracy in the North African country where the Arab Spring revolts began in 2011.
