A handover ceremony was held in Tripoli between former Interior Minister, Aref Al-Khawaja, and the new appointed minister, Brigadier General Abdul Salam Ashour.

This constitutes the first ministerial reshuffle among an upcoming cabinet reshuffle, which the Presidential Council intends to undertake, after consultations that have been underway for some time.

The Chairman of the Presidential Council announced earlier that these steps will contribute to the success of the general elections, which are scheduled to be held before the end of the year.
