Libya to form new government within three weeks
Azerbaijan, Baku, Nov. 4 / Trend , A.Tagiyeva /
Head of the Transitional National Council (TNC) Abdel Rahim al-Kib has stated that a new Libyan government will be formed within the next two to three weeks.
The main task of the TNC is to ensure security in the country, he said in an interview with the Turkish news agency Anadolu.
"Libya has faced a lot of unsolved problems, but the most important is the security issue," Mr. al-Kib said.
Mr. Abdel Rahim al-Kib was elected by a vote of TNC members which took place in front of the press. He is to appoint a new interim government within two weeks that will pave the way for the drafting of a constitution, as well as pledging general elections.
He replaces outgoing interim Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril, who had agreed to step down after the victory over Muammar Gaddafi's regime.
The TNC, which is actually the interim government of Libya, earlier vowed that elections for the National Assembly will be held eight months after the rebels' victory. The National Assembly would draft a new constitution within a year and then general parliamentary elections will be held.
