32. NTC lays out timeline to form new government

The NTC plans to create an interim government

A prime minister will form a government

The Libyan people will vote on a new constitution

By Jill Dougherty and Mohammed Tawfeeq, CNN

updated 10:20 PM EST, Wed September 21, 2011

Tripoli, Libya (CNN) --


After liberation, the NTC will create an interim government by appointing a prime minister who will be responsible for forming the government. The prime minister will decide how many ministers will be in that interim government, but he must return to the NTC for approval of that government.

Belhaj explained that the NTC decided to use the expression "interim government" because "the international community wants to deal with us through a government."

That interim government will prepare for the election of a National Congress within eight months, a body that will have 200 members. At the creation of the congress, the NTC will cease to exist.

The National Congress, Belhaj said, will form a committee to write a constitution for Libya, which will then be presented to the Libyan people to vote on in a referendum. If it's approved, Libya will have a permanent democratic constitution for the first time, he said.
