Ahmed Maiteeq- Libya’s youngest and fifth Prime Minister since dictator Kadhafi was toppled and killed in 2011 uprising

Businessman Ahmed Maiteeq (42) of Libya’s National Conference has been elected as the new Prime Minister. Maiteeq defeated his rival Omar al-Hassi, a university professor. It comes three weeks after former PM Abdullah al-Thinni resigned from the post.

Libya has been grappling with instability since armed groups threw out Muammar Gaddafi’s regime in 2011. Maiteeq will have to tackle the lawlessness and insecurity currently destabilizing the country. He is the fifth Prime Minister to be appointed to lead the country in the past two and a half years.
