In a late-night sitting of parliament in Tunisia, the new government of Prime Minister Elyes Fakhfakh has won a vote of confidence.
After more than 14 hours of debate, MPs voted 129 to 77 with one abstention in favour of the new cabinet line-up.
President Qais Saied had threatened to dissolve parliament and call early elections if the confidence motion was lost.
Habib Jemli, who was previously nominated by Islamist Ennahda Party, failed to get his cabinet endorsed by parliament.
Mr Fakhfakh’s new government faces an uphill task in reviving Tunisia’s economy and tackling high unemployment.
