The make-up of a new Libyan government of national accord aimed at uniting the country's warring factions under a U.N.-backed plan was announced on Tuesday.
A Tunis-based Presidential Council formed under the plan named a total of 32 ministers. The council had pushed back the deadline for naming the government by 48 hours, amid reports of disputes over the distribution of ministerial posts.
I congratulate Libyan people & Presidency Council on formation of Govt. of National Accord. I urge HoR to promptly convene, endorse the Govt— Martin Kobler (@KoblerSRSG) January 19, 2016
Kolber called on Libya’s rival parliaments to endorse the unity government, although less than half of lawmakers have signed up to the deal.
