Hamadi Jebali made the announcement following a meeting with President Moncef Marzouki.

Mr Jebali's own party, the moderate Islamist Ennahda that dominates the government, rejected the initiative, insisting that the country still needed a government of politicians.

The assassination of a leftist politician on February 6 has plunged the country into turmoil and unleashed days of unrest.

Mr Jebali said his resignation was a first step in restoring public confidence in the government.
