Gannouchi concedes to elections as Tunis burns

The provisional PM M. Gannouchi, who was the lapdog of Ben Ali for a decade, has been forced to concede on elections before July as unrest, strikes and uprisings continue across the country, specially in the south, in the Kasserine area.

As a partial culmination of this process, this Friday 100,000 people gathered in Tunis before the Interior Ministry demanding the resignation of Gannouchi. There are informations of public buildings set alight.

I'd say that he's following the steps of his mentor Ben Ali in no time.
