Tripoli, 19 December 2014:
Abdullah Al-Thinni’s Beida-based government made a series of high-ranking appointments to run departments that are, to all . . .[restrict]intents and purposes, ministries.
Ordinarily these jobs would carry ministerial rank, but the House of Representatives insisted the prime minister form a slimmed-down government, with no more than ten cabinet places, including his own and that of deputy premier.
The government has thus named Bast Aoud Mayuf Mayar as chairman for the Public Authority for Agriculture Management, a job that would have formerly been Minister of Agriculture. Hashim Fadil Hashim was appointed as his deputy.
Ahmed Abdulgader Al-Saeedi was named chairman of the Urban Planning Department. His deputy is to be Mohamed Al-Maroum.
Ali Koso Ardi Othman was chosen as chairman of the Public Authority for Housing and Facilities Management. Abubaker Mohamed Al-Ghawi was named as his deputy.
The new chairman of the General Authority for Project Management is Mohamed Salem Al-Kilani Al-Orabi. His deputy will be Ahmed Abubaker Mohamed.
