Dr Mustafa Abushagur is the new Prime Minister of Libya, the first PM to be appointed by the democratically elected General National Congress after it took power last month. He is a liberal, and replaces Abdurrahim el-Keib who was the caretaker Prime Minister leftover by the National Transitional Council after they handed over power in August.
The vote just happened so no article yet. He beat Mahmoud Jibril, leader of the liberal National Forces Alliance and wartime interim Prime Minister by 2 votes. The Muslim Brotherhood's candidate was defeated in the first round, receiving 41 votes to Abushagur's 55 and Jibril's 86. Abushagur had been the liberals' preferred candidate, until Jibril made a surprise late entry into the race.
Abushagur's government will run Libya for about 18 months, while a constituent assembly works on Libya's permanent constitution. Once the constitution passes a referendum, general elections will be held and Libya's political reconstruction will be largely complete. Congress will spend the coming days appointing Abushagur's cabinet ministers, after which the constituent assembly will presumably be their next priority.[/TD][TD][/TD][/TR][/TABLE]
