Libya’s interim Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibah has submitted his proposal for the new government for parliament approval in an effort to unite the country’s divided institutions, the prime minister’s office said.
“In accordance with the road map of the political agreement … (Dbeibah) handed over to the speaker of the elected parliament his proposals for ministerial portfolios,” the office said in a statement.
The House of Representatives is slated to vote on the list on Monday in the central coastal city of Sirte, halfway between the two administrations in the east and west.
The premier has until March 19 to win approval for a Cabinet, before tackling the giant task of unifying Libya’s proliferating institutions and leading the transition up to the Dec. 24 polls.
The new Prime Minister was selected in early February in a U.N.-sponsored inter-Libyan dialogue, the latest internationally-backed bid to salvage the country from a decade of conflict and fragmented political fiefdoms.
Mohammad Younes Menfi was elected to head the presidency council of the interim government. Mossa al-Koni and Abdullah Hussein al-Lafi were also voted as the other two members of the presidency council.
After unveiling the proposal last week, Dbeibah said the new government structure has been prepared in accordance with the United Nations road map.
