Hassi "Government" Sworn in

Libya Herald reports that Omar Al-Hassi's new cabinet has been sworn in by Salah Makhzoum, the second deputy president of the General National Congress (GNC).

It means that Libya now effectively has two governments, one in Tripoli and another in the east, although it is not clear whether the Hassi government can wield any effective power.

It has the support of the Libya Dawn Operation and of Misrata and some other towns in the west of the country such as Gharian and Zawia, who in turn control the capital, but its ability to govern even in those areas is as considered minimal.
