Tunisia parliament speaker Ennaceur to serve as temporary president

TUNIS (Reuters) - The speaker of Tunisia’s parliament, Mohamed Ennaceur, said on Thursday said he would be the country’s temporary president, in line with the constitution.

In his speech on national television, Ennaceur also called for unity after the death of Tunisia’s 92-year-old president, Beji Caid Essebsi, which was announced on Thursday.
