Tripoli, 18 November 2015:
The head of the planning committee for the new University of Sabratha has called on . . .[restrict]the higher education ministry in the “government” of Khalifa Gwell in Tripoli to provide funds for its development plans. Ezzadin Kamuka says he has submitted a three-month budget to Ghwell’s higher education ministry and is awaiting approval.
The university is being carved out of the Zawia University’s colleges at Sabratha, Ajilat Al-Jmail and Sorman. It is intended to serve those towns as well as Rigdaleen and Zultan.
There are plans that it will establish a number of new faculties.
The splitting of Zawia University and creation of the new university was approved earlier this year by the Ghwell government. Sabratha municipal council which has strongly back the project has handed over a former educational building near the Roman ruins to serve as its administrative headquarters.
A head for Sabratha University is still to be appointed and the planning committee is still looking at the administrative structure. [/restrict]
