The Transitional National Council of Libya has named the new principal interim ministers of the government.

The new head of the Defense Ministry will be the head of the Military Council of the City of Zintan (southwest of Tripoli) Osama al-Dzhuvali.

Contrary to earlier information the Minister of Foreign Affairs will be Ashur bin Khayal, a diplomat from the eastern part of the country.

The Ministry of Finance will be headed by Hassan Ziglamu, who was originally supposed to be the head of the oil ministry, which will now be headed by Abdul Rahman bin Essay, a former employee of the Italian oil group ENI.

 Libya’s NTC announces new interim government

TRIPOLI, Nov. 22 (Xinhua) — The prime minister of Libya’s interim government announced the lineup of the country’s transitional cabinet in the capital Tripoli late Tuesday that will lead the war-torn country until parliamentary elections are held in 2012.

Prime Minister Abdel Rahim el-Keeb said at a press conference in Tripoli late Tuesday that Ali El Tarhouni will be finance minister, Fawzy Abdel Aal is named as interior minister, Osama Jewle is nominated as defense minister, and Anwar El Fetori will be communication minister.

The formation of a new government in Libya has been postponed repeatedly due to differences among factions within the National Transitional Council (NTC), formed by anti-Gaddafi forces not long after the revolt erupted in Benghazi.

Abdel Rahim el-Keeb, a professor of Tripoli University, was elected late October as Libya’s new interim prime minister.

El-Keeb, also a member of the NTC, won 26 out of 51 votes, which was conducted in the presence of domestic and foreign journalists in the capital.
