Tripoli — Libya's Prime Minister-elect is to stand down after failing for a second time to win parliamentary approval for a new cabinet.
Libya's national congress passed a vote of no confidence on Sunday dismissing the newly elected prime minister.
Mustafa Abu Shagur had called for the formation of an "emergency government", consisting of just 10 ministries.
The General National Congress (GNC) voted 125 to 44 against the proposal. Seventeen members abstained, according to a Libyan national television report.
The GNC now has three to four weeks to elect a new premier.
