CAIRO, Feb 5 (MENA) – The Arab League has praised a vote held by members of the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum in Geneva, which led to the formation of a new interim government for Libya.

An official source at the pan-Arab body welcomed the success of the forum in shouldering its responsibilities in this positive way, a statement issued by the Arab League on Friday said.

The source expressed hope that the Presidency Council be inaugurated and the new government be formed as soon as possible

Mohammed al-Menfi, a former diplomat from Benghazi, will head the three-man Presidency Council, while Abdulhamid Dbeibeh, from the western city of Misrata, will head the government as prime minister.

Libya has been engulfed in chaos since Muammar Gaddafi was toppled in 2011 and has been split since 2014 between warring administrations backed by foreign powers in the west and east.
