Tripoli, 20 December 2016:
The Presidency Council has met once again to work on its final ministerial picks for the GNA, to be submitted to parliament in Tobruk. Since it was meeting in Tripoli which he considers insecure, Ali Gatrani did not join his eight colleagues. Earlier this month, another gathering to mull the new cabinet was held in Tunis so that Gatrani could attend.
Little detail has been revealed the decisions made at what the PC says was an ordinary scheduled Monday meeting. The ministerial allocations for the 2017 budget was on the agenda along with the lack of cash for banks to issue, the still falling exchange rate and the Council’s continuing row with the Central Bank at its governor Saddek Elkaber.
A PC statement said the Presidential Guard and an anti-crime force had been the focus of security discussions. The Council had also reportedly laid the groundwork for plans to overcome the power and fuel crises that are particularly affecting the west of country.
