Libya elects new interim prime minister

6 years ago11 views

Libya's National Transitional Council has named Abdurrahim El-Keib as the country's a new interim prime minister to replace Mahmoud Jibril. He won 26 out of 51 votes, and said that he expected to choose his cabinet ministers within two weeks.

El-Keib is an award-winning electrical engineering professor who has taught at the University of Tripoli as well as numerous US universities. He most recently worked at the Petroleum Institute in the United Arab Emirates.

Jalal el-Gallal, an NTC spokesman, said the council wanted to form a new interim government after the fall of Gaddafi because its initial members started out as an impromptu group.
