Libyan Prime Minister Reconfirmed


Libyan Parliament Speaker Nouri Abu-Sahmain confirmed, Monday, the appointment of Ahmed Ma'itik as prime minister. Ma'itik will be asked to form a government in two weeks.

Ma'itik was sworn in on Sunday but one of Abu-Sahmain's deputies, Ezzedine Al-Awami, invalidated the move, claiming that there were not enough parliament members present for the vote.
