Libyan PM dismissed
2012-10-08 15:21:51 | (0 Comments)
Libya's Prime Minister-elect has been dismissed from his post, after failing for a second time to win parliamentary approval for a new cabinet.
Mustafa Abu Shagur had called for the formation of an emergency government, consisting of just 10 ministries.
The General National Congress voted 125 to 44 against the proposal.
Shagur was Libya's first elected prime minister following last year's overthrow of Col Muammar Gaddafi.
He had served as deputy prime minister for more than a year under interim leader Abdurrahim al-Keib.
The congress now has three to four weeks to elect a new premier.
