Libya’s new PM delays naming Cabinet as deadline passes | Al Jazeera

Libya’s newly-elected prime minister failed to name members of a much-anticipated Cabinet ahead of an expected deadline on Thursday, raising questions over whether his transitional government can unite Libya’s factions.

Prime Minister-designate Abdul Hamid Dbeibah was set to announce his Cabinet in a news conference from the capital, Tripoli, and send it to Libya’s House of Representatives for approval.

Instead, Dbeibah told reporters he only shared with Libyan legislators proposed guidelines for the selection of Cabinet members and a “vision” of his priorities in the coming period.

“We submitted today a proposition for a structure and a working vision of a national unity government along with the selection criteria for (that) team … to the speaker of Parliament,” Dbeibah told reporters in Tripoli on Thursday evening.

He said the submission was in line with the deadline set by a United Nations road map, which requires at least 30 percent of top government posts to be filled by women and young candidates.

He also told reporters the names of proposed ministers will be disclosed in Parliament during a vote of confidence for his lineup.

The UN-backed transitional road map envisages holding general elections in the war-torn North African country by the end of the year.
