Why did France decolonize Tunisia?

In 1952, Morocco, Algeria, and Tunisia were all pushing for independence. However, since Algeria was considered part of France at that point (much the way that Hawaii is considered part of the United States today), the French wished to keep Algeria under French sovereignty to a much greater degree than either Morocco or Tunisia. Additionally, Tunisia had a powerful and emboldening leader in Habib Bourghiba who pressed strongly for independence and negotiated a gradual withdrawal of French forces, while maintaining good relations with France. This led the French to trust him with independence and be willing to concede it to him. As a result, in 1956, France gave both Morocco and Tunisia independence in order to focus on retaining Algeria.
