Tripoli, 4 May 2014:
The General National Congress (GNC ) was unable to agree on a new Prime Minister in . . .[restrict]its morning session today.
A vote took place this morning to choose one of the two candidates who had won through from the last round of voting last week, which was interrupted by gun fire outside the GNC building.
In today’s voting the results were as follows:
Ahmed Maetiq: 73 votes
Omar Sulaiman Al-Hassi: 43 votes
Spoilt votes: 36
Total votes: 152
This still means that neither Ahmed Maetig nor Omar Al-Hassi obtained the required 120 votes.
The GNC has now moved to giving a vote of confidence on Ahmed Maetig. But, Libya Herald understands that he will need 120 votes of confidence in order to be elected as Prime Minister. [/restrict]
