Libya’s Prime Minister appoints himself Defence Minister
The Libyan Presidential Council’s Head and Prime Minister of the Government of National Accord (GNA) Fayez Al-Sirraj passed on Thursday an order that appoints him himself as the Defence Minister for the GNA.
The Defence Minister Mihdi Al-Barghathi was sacked by Al-Sirraj over a month ago.
Now Al-Sirraj holds multiple position in the fragile government in Tripoli; he is a prime minister, a head of the Presidential Council, chief in command, and the head of the Tripoli crisis committee after the recent clashes.
