Tripoli, 4 August 2013:
Kamila Khamis Al-Mazini, who announced that she was resigning as Minister of Social . . .[restrict]Affairs last week in protest at the recent spate of assassinations and the deteriorating security situation as well as what she termed the unacceptable silence of the government, has withdrawn her resignation.
In a statement to the Libyan news agency LANA, she said that the interests of Libya and the needs of the disabled, widows and orphans and divorced women “who represent a large proportion of society” had to come first, particularly at present.
It is not known if her decision to reverse her decision has anything to do the resignation yesterday of Awad Barasi as Deputy Prime Minister, ostensibly for the same reasons.
