TUNIS (Reuters) - Tunisia’s Prime Minister Youssef Chahed on Wednesday named a new cabinet, after reaching a compromise deal with political parties following weeks of infighting over minister posts, government and party sources said.

Chahed appointed Ridha Chalgoum, a former finance minister close to ruling Nidaa Tounes party, as finance minister, and Lotfi Braham, another Nidaa Tounes ally, as interior minister, the sources said.
