The secretary general of Tunisia's ruling Islamist party said on Wednesday he supported the formation of a non-partisan cabinet in the country, a day after secular opposition supporters rallied to oust the government.

Tens of thousands had demonstrated on Tuesday in Bardo Square in Tunis in an escalation of ongoing protests since the assassination of opposition figure Mohammad Brahmi on July 25.

"We need to form a non-political government to lead the country to elections within six months.", Hamadi Jebali, secretary General of Ennahda and a former prime minister, said.
