    (ANSAmed) - TUNIS - Talks between Tunisia's majority and opposition coalitions were officially suspended on Monday night. The decision was taken by the four groups mediating negotiations - Ugtt, the industrialists' union, the national attorneys' association and Human rights league - after the umpteenth failed negotiation.

    The key issue was the appointment of the next premier who should replace Ali Laarayedh, a member of Ennahda, and control the speedy approval of a new Constitution and prepare for political elections. (ANSAmed)
