Ahmed Maitiq is Libya’s new PM

Ahmed Maitiq took oath as Libya’s new Prime Minister along with his cabinet ministers amidst objections against his election process. Libyan Parliament has been in an impasse since former leader Muammar Gaddafi was ousted in 2011 after protests.

Politicians have raised objections against Maitiq’s election as PM because out of the 200 lawmakers, only 93 were present in the confidence vote. Out of the 93 votes, 83 votes supported Maitiq as the PM. Many have called the confidence vote meaningless considering the absence of over 50% of lawmakers.
