Libya has named Abdel-Rahim al-Keeb as the country's new Prime Minster.
Working to quickly begin the country's new, post-Moammar Gadhafi era, Libya's interim government, the National Transitional Council, elected Keeb on Monday. Keeb, an electronics engineer from Tripoli, received 26 of 51 council votes, and will appoint the rest of his cabinet in the coming days, according to The Associated Press.
Keeb will run the country as Libya prepares for the yet-to-be scheduled general elections.
Since the conflict in Libya began, the NTC has stated that they will cede their power as soon as the revolution was over.
Also on Monday, NATO will officially end its campaign in Libya, another step in the process of forming a new, independent Libyan government.
You acted to change your history and your destiny, we acted to protect you, Secretary General of NATO, Anders Fogh Rasmussen said at a joint news conference with Libya's interim leader, Mustafa Abdul-Jalil.
Together we succeeded: Libya is finally free.
At midnight tonight, a successful chapter in NATO's history is coming to an end, but you have already started writing a new chapter in the history of Libya, a new Libya based on freedom, democracy, human rights and the rule of law, Rasmussen added.
We know it's not easy. We know the challenges, and if you ask us for help in areas where we can help, we will.
