14:21, September 30, 2011

BEIJING, Sept. 30 (Xinhuanet) -- The ruling authorities will postpone the formation of an interim government until the entire Libya is without redoubts of fallen leader Muammar Gaddafi, Mahmoud Jibril, chairman of the executive office of Libya's National Transitional Council (NTC) confirmed here on Thursday.

Therefore, the current executive office is to remain in operation, Jibril told reporters in Tripoli, confirming Tuesday's report about the NTC's decision after negotiation not to establish a transitional government till all Libya is under NTC's rule.

According to Jibril, the existing executive office will be kept as the caretaker administration. But he admitted that there could be some changes in some ministries.

Anyone qualified for the posts in the future formation of the government could apply for the posts, said the chairman of NTC's executive office, who also dismissed allegations that tribe members would have to spend more "waiting time" than the NTC members in application.

In the meantime, Jibril said he will not be "related to the transitional government," but failed to elaborate on that.

On the reported capture of Moussa Ibrahim, spokesman of Gaddafi, Jibril said he had heard about this, but cannot confirm. "But I hope it is true," he said.

The senior official also said the NTC has agreed with a number of countries, including Italy, France and Egypt, on sending the injured to their countries for proper treatment, and confirmed that the personnel from Brazil, Sudan and Egypt are helping the new Libyan rulers with the clearance of mines in some towns.
