Tunis, 12 August 2015:
In a not wholly unexpected twist to Prime Minister Abdullah Al-Thinni’s surprise resignation on TV . . .[restrict]last night, the government spokesman that it was simply an offer to resign.
Hatem Oraibi said there had been no official resignation. All that had happened is that, while defending his position in tough questioning from interviewer Mohamed Zeidan of Libya’s Channel TV, Thinni had said that he could resign and that Libyans could find someone else who had a magic wand to solve all their problems.
Thinni had threatened to resign before and has told several people in private that he is exhausted with the job. [/restrict]
