TUNIS (Reuters) - Tunisia's Islamist government has agreed to resign after talks with secular opponents that could begin next week to form a caretaker government and set a date for elections, a powerful union negotiating the deal said on Saturday.
The negotiations aim to end deadlock between the Islamist-led coalition and secular parties that has threatened to derail a fragile transition to democracy in the North Africa country that started the 2011 Arab Spring revolts.
