Tunisian Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali announced he will form a technocratic government - a government of experts rather than established politicians.
"After the failure of negotiations between parties on a cabinet reshuffle, I decided to form a small technocrat government," Jebali said in a speech.
He said the ministers would not run for office, but fresh elections would be held as soon as possible.
The move comes amid mass unrest in the country after today's assassination of opposition figure Chokri Belaid.
