Tunisia new gov't faces resistance before ratification vote

TUNIS (Reuters) - Tunisia's Islamist party Ennahda, which holds the second largest number of seats in parliament, said on Sunday it would reject a government proposed last week by Prime Minister-designate Habib Essid, complicating his cabinet's ratification. A leftist block also said it was opposed to the planned administration, underlining the tough task Essid faces in tackling essential economic reforms, even if his cabinet manages to win a confirmation vote in parliament expected on Tuesday. #content #wcnts #wcntn #typeof-social #undefined #cookie #rco #aut #typeof-registered

Ousted Thai PM banned from politics, faces charges

BANGKOK (Reuters) - Thai authorities dealt a double blow to ousted Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and her powerful family on Friday, banning her from politics for five years and proceeding with criminal charges for negligence that could put her in jail. The moves could stoke tension in the politically divided country still living under martial law after the military seized power in May, toppling the remnants of Yingluck's government to end months of street protests. The ban and the legal case are the latest twist in 10 years of turbulent politics that have pitted Yingluck and her brother Thaksin, himself a former prime minister, against the royalist-military establishment that sees the Shinawatras as a threat and reviles their populist policies #Yahoo! #content #wcntn #typeof-social #undefined #rco #aut #typeof-registered #cnt
