Tripoli -

Libya's General National Congress, or interim parliament, said on Monday it would comply with a supreme court ruling that premier Ahmed Maiteeq's election in early May was unconstitutional.

“The congress complied with the judiciary's decision,” Salah al-Makhzum, a vice-president of the GNC, told a press conference.

He added that “in line with this decision the head of the interim government is Abdullah al-Thani,” the outgoing prime minister who refused to hand over power to Maiteeq's cabinet pending the court's decision. - Sapa-AFP
