Abdel-Rahim al-Keeb was chosen on Monday by 51 members of the National Transitional Council (NTC) and will appoint a cabinet in the coming days. The new government is to run Libya for the next few months and will pave the way for general elections. Jalal el-Gallal, an NTC spokesman, says Keeb received 26 votes. He said the NTC wanted to form a new interim government following the fall of Muammar Gaddafi because its original members started out as an impromptu group.
