Two months after seizing power, Tunisia's President Kais Saied named Najla Bouden Romdhane as his prime minister, making her the first woman in the country's history to hold that office.
"The President of the Republic, Kais Saied, charged Najla Bouden with forming a government as quickly as possible," read a statement from his office published on Facebook.
Not much is known about the engineering academic who used to work for the World Bank, and Saied did not provide any more details about his decision.
