March 14, 2011 - A joint ministerial working session was held on Monday March 14, 2011 morning, under Caretaker Prime Minister Béji Caïd Essebsi's chairmanship, to look at the file of regional administration, particularly the affairs of "délégations," i.e. districts.
During the session, attended by the National Defense Minister, the Interior Minister and the Minister Delegate to the Prime Minister, it was decided to appoint new "delegates," persons known for their competence and having no political affiliation.
The meeting also helped examine the issue of public and local communities. In this regard, decision was taken to replace the outgoing or resigned municipal councils by specific delegations.
