TUNIS, March 1 (Reuters) - Tunisia's Minister of Economic Reform, Elyes Jouini, has resigned, private radio broadcaster Shems FM said on Tuesday.

Jouini's departure follows three other high-profile resignations from the interim government, including that of the prime minister, since a flare up of street protests.
