After having his 10-person emergency cabinet proposal rejected by the Libyan Parliament, Prime Minister Mustafa Abu Shagur was relieved of his duties on Monday, AFP reported. He had been in power for less than a month.
He was given three days to put together a new cabinet after the assembly rejected his original “crisis” cabinet, but a no-confidence vote was signed by 126 assembly members before he could submit the new proposal.
One of the major complaints against Abu Shagur was that his cabinet ministry choices were not fairly representative of the various “sectors or regions of Libyan society,” Press TV said.
