Libyan assembly passes vote of no confidence dismissing prime minister

Source: Reuters.

(Reuters) - Libya's national congress dismissed the newly elected prime minister on Sunday in a vote of no confidence which underscored the difficulties of forming a government which can unite the country's different factions and regions.

The vote came minutes after prime minister Mustafa Abushagur named 10 new ministers - his second and ultimately unsuccessful attempt to form a government - after he was forced to withdraw his previous cabinet in the face of protests.

Abushagur was elected by the assembly on September12 and last week announced an original list for a government which included 29 ministries.

He withdrew the list after protests from the national congress as well as the public saying it was not representative of the country. Between 100 and 150 demonstrators from the western town of Zawiyah stormed the national congress on Thursday.

1. Does this mean that the Liban congress has rejected the leadership the West has chosen for them?

That is what we do, afterall. We overthrow governments and install regimes that we like Sometimes the people subject to those regimes don't like our choices. Imagine that? The ingrates.

3. Juan Cole: Top Ten Things Mitt Romney Gets Wrong about US Middle East Policy

9. While it is true that a small terrorist cell attacked the US consulate in Benghazi and set a fire that killed the US ambassador to Libya, it is also true that tens of thousands of Libyans demonstrated in favor of America and the ambassador, and that the elected president of the Libyan parliament just called for a secular, democratic state in that country. None of the good news, about the progress of democracy or general pro-American sentiment, would have been possible had the Republican Party had its way and prevented the US from supporting the UN Security Council resolution calling for all necessary measures to be taken to protect the Libyan people from their murderous government.
