Libyan Integrity Commission Reviews Cabinet Nominees

Libya's Integrity and Patriotism Commission on Monday (November 26th) turned over its conclusions regarding 24 ministers in Prime Minister Ali Zidan's interim government.

"Now the decision to deny confidence or allow them to be sworn in is an internal affair for the General National Congress," Commission spokesman Salah Belnour said.

"Four ministers - interior, higher education, electricity and Congress affairs - have already filed appeals," he added.

The commission on Tuesday said it had cleared three of the government ministers under investigation, Libya Herald reported.

Zidan and most of his government were sworn in on November 16th.
