National Assembly, council of ministers, commander, army, constitution

National executive power in Tunisia is exercised by the president, who is head of state and commander in chief of the army, and who also appoints a council of ministers, headed by a prime minister, which is responsible to the president. The constitution specifies that the president is to be popularly elected to a five-year term; in 1975, however, the National Assembly proclaimed President Habib Bourguiba president for life. Bourguiba held office until his ouster in November 1987.
