Libyan Prime Minister Ali Zeidan [Zidan] has said he had changed his mind and would not reshuffle his cabinet.
He told a press conference:
“After examining the possible repercussions of such a move, we have chosen not to change the make-up of the government.”
The premier said he had take the decision after consulting his advisors and members of the General National Congress (GNC), the country’s highest political authority.
But he said a “crisis committee”, comprising the ministers of interior, defence, foreign affairs and justice, as well as the chief of intelligence, would be created to react quickly to developments in the country.
