(TAP) -  Prime Minister-designate and Interior Minister Hichem Mechichi said on Friday "the next government will be that of all Tunisians and will respond to their aspirations."

Socio-economic issues will be a top priority, Mechichi told TAP on the fringes of a visit to the governorate of Siliana on  Eid al-Adha feast. Women will likewise see their representativeness increased in the cabinet as it is the case in all sectors

Talks for the formation of the next cabinet are going on, the PM-designate said. There were meetings last week with representatives of civil society, social and economic experts and members of academia, he added.

In another vein, Hichem Mechichi said the security situation is "stable" but vigilance "is still called for" and "terrorist threats persist."

Handling terrorist threats moved from the stage of response to that of proactive operations which, he said, helped thwart plans for attacks.

Commenting on the increasing flow of undocumented migrants, the minister said hundreds managed to enter the country. A series of measures will be taken to address irregular migration to and from Tunisia.
