Libya

Interim PM resigns


Published

The woes of Libya continued yesterday after interim Prime Minister Abdullah Al-Thinni announced that he was resigning as soon as the General National Congress (GNC) can find a replacement.

The move came after the prime minister’s home was attacked and the immediate neighbourhood terrified by a gun battle. The prime minister announced that he would not allow a “drop of blood to be spilled because of me”.

Although the government had managed to broker a deal with rebels in the east of the country and open up the oil ports once more, the interim prime minister was under pressure to appoint a new Cabinet but with little support coming from a fractured GNC.
