Libya set to get new government

Libya’s new Prime Minister Ahmed Maiteeq has formed a government pending parliamentary approval this week, officials said yesterday, after the country went nearly two months without a functioning government. Libya, a major oil producer, badly needs a government to try to impose some authority on a country effectively ruled by the militias who helped topple Muammar Gaddafi in the 2011 revolt but now defy the state.
