LIBYA PM ANNOUNCES ‘COMPROMISE’ AFTER MILITIA ULTIMATUM

0

TRIPOLI: Libyan Prime Minister Ali Zeidan said late Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila) a “compromise” had been reached with former rebel militias who had given Libya’s interim assembly a deadline to hand over power. Powerful militias made up of former rebels from the western town of Zintan had given the General National Congress, the country’s highest political authority, a deadline to quit, threatening to seize any lawmaker who ignored it. Zeidan said the deadline had been extended by 72 hours but did not give further details of the compromise, telling journalists only that “wisdom has prevailed” after discussions with representatives from the militias, the assembly and the United Nations (UN).
