Azerbaijan, Baku, Sept. 15 / Trend A. İsgandarov /

The Libyan National Transitional Council agreed to form a permanent government headed by Mahmoud Jibril , current head of the Executive office of the NTC, Moheet reported.

Libya 's interim leaders failed to agree a new cabinet on Sunday in the latest setback to attempts to normalise the running of a government still bogged down by battles with pro-Muammar Gaddafi forces, Reuters reported.

The cabinet -- or executive committee -- was dissolved last month after procedural errors in the handling of the unexplained shooting dead of the newly ruling National Transitional Council's (NTC) military chief.

A new executive committee, to include officials responsible for defence and interior affairs, was supposed to be appointed by interim Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril on Sunday.
