Libya's new Prime Minister may lose his job over this.
Libya's prime minister today submitted revised cabinet plans after his first proposal was rejected by parliament and prompted protests, endangering his new position, according to BBC News.
Protesters angered over the initial cabinet gathered Thursday outside the national assembly, and some of them reportedly called on the prime minister to step down, reported Agence-France Press.
Mustafa Abu Shagur was given only 72 hours to get a new cabinet list approved or he will be forced to resign less than a month into his term, said AFP.
Shagur today submitted plans for the establishment of 10 ministries, among them defense, interior and justice, according to Reuters.
Thursday's protest, some 100 strong, was led by citizens from the towns of Zawiya and Zuwara, said BBC.
Libya's new government is supposed to be temporary anyway, according to the transition plan described by AFP, only allowed in power for about a year so that a new constitution can be written and fresh elections held.
