MOSCOW, December 7 (Itar-Tass) — Russia’s presidential African envoy Mikhail Margelov hopes a new transitional government in Libya will be able to impose order in the country.
“The chief task of the new government and new Prime Minister Abdurrahim el-Keib is to impose order and normalize life in the country, and to prepare parliamentary and general elections,” Margelov said on Wednesday. “We hope that the new government will be able to cushion the two widely-discussed scenarios – a protracted civil war or religious extremists taking over the helm of power.”
The inauguration of the new cabinet, according to Margelov, testifies to the fact that the Libyan situation is “developing in line with the roadmap adopted by the National Transitional Council.”
Speaking about the composition of the new government, he noted that it was formed “with due account of the need to smooth contradictions between various groups.”
“So far the country is in the grip of chaos and settling of old scores between the leaders may trigger conflicts, including armed conflicts,” he said. This was the reason, he noted, to include into the new transitional cabinet two field rebel commanders, Osama al-Juwali (the head of Zintan’s military council), who was appointed minister of defence, and Fawzi Abd al All (commander of Musurata anti-Gaddafi opposition), who was appointed interior minister.
