TUNIS, Feb 6 (Reuters) - Tunisian Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali announced on Wednesday he will form a technocrat government.

"After the failure of negotiations between parties on a cabinet reshuffle, I decided to form a small technocrat government," Jebali said in a speech to the nation.

He said the ministers would not run for office but elections would subsequently be held as soon as possible. (Reporting by Tarek Amara; Editing by Robin Pomeroy)
