    TUNIS - US State Department spokesman Ned Price on Tuesday said that the appointment of a new Tunisian government was a positive step and congratulated the country on the new government under Prime Minister Najla Bouden Romdhane.
    "The new government, which includes 10 female ministers, is a welcome step forwards towards addressing the significant economic, health and social challenges facing the country," Price said in the statement, which ended with: "We look forward to further announcements to establish a broadly inclusive process for a rapid return to constitutional order".
    On Oct. 8, Price had urged Tunisian president Kais Saied and the prime minister-designate at that time, Najla Bouden, to meet the population's demands for a clear timeline for a return to a transparent democratic process involving civil society and diverse political voices.
