Tripoli, 14 September 2014:
A source within the House of Representatives (H0R) has confirmed that Prime Minister Abdullah Al-Thinni . . .[restrict]will present a proposal for his new, slimmed-down cabinet to the legislature on Monday. However, one HoR member has said that it could be Tuesday because of the visit to Tobruk by delegation from neighbouring countries.
Thinni was scheduled to make the proposal five days ago, but postponed the announcement, according to some reports because he and the president of the HoR were making a hastily-organised trip to the United Arab Emirates, according to other because he was under pressure by Cyrenaica federalists as well as by Mahmoud Jibril to include some of their preferred candidates. Spokesman for the HoR Faraj Hashim told the Libya Herald, however, that the decision to delay was made so that Thinni could “study more candidates”.
One HoR member has said that it is important that Thinni appoint his cabinet soon so that the current deadlocks within state institutions can be dealt with and proper support given to the army and the police so that the current state of lawlessness and the threat of terrorism can be addressed.
Thinni was asked to form a new full-time government by the HoR a week ago and it has been widely reported that he had already chosen his team.
