Ahmed Maiteeq is Libya's new prime minister, deputy speaker says
Libyan businessman Ahmed Maiteeq is the country's new prime minister, second deputy speaker of parliament Saleh al-Makhzoun said on Sunday.

 

"Ahmed Maiteeq is officially the new prime minister," Makhzoun told a chaotic session of the General National Congress.

 

Some lawmakers immediately challenged this, saying Maiteeq had failed to win the necessary quorum in an earlier vote. (Reuters)
