Libya's NTC postpones announcement of new gov't


10:23, September 28, 2011

CAIRO, Sept. 27 (Xinhua) -- Libya's National Transitional Council (NTC) decided to postpone the announcement of a newly- formed interim government until the entire country is under the NTC's rule, Al-Jazeera TV reported Tuesday.

The consultations have produced a decision to postpone the formation of a transitional government until all the country is without redoubts of fallen leader Muammar Gaddafi, said Moustafa el-Huni, the NTC member, in Benghazi.

NTC chief Moustafa Abdel-Jalil had said the new government would be announced this week, saying that "differences in views" between NTC members and the executive council had delayed a deal.

The February 17 coalition and civil society institutions issued a statement on Monday asserting that the formation of a Libyan government now would clearly contradict what was stipulated in the constitutional declaration, which prohibits the announcement of a government before a liberation proclamation.
