Libya’s national congress has elected a new prime minister, Ali Zidan.

Mr Zidan, an independent, won 93 votes – a majority among those present. He beat a candidate favoured by the Justice and Construction party – which is linked to the Muslim Brotherhood.

The president of the national assembly, announcing his victory, asked Mr Zidan to propose a cabinet within two weeks.

The previous PM, Mustafa Abu Shagur, was dismissed a week ago after failing to form a government.

Mr Zidan was a career diplomat for Colonel Muammar Gaddafi before defecting in 1980 and joining the opposition in exile.

Local observers see him as a liberal with a strong personality, says the BBC’s Rana Jawad in Tripoli.

He served the former transitional government as its Europe envoy, and was seen as a key player in convincing the ex-French President, Nicolas Sarkozy, to support the uprising against Colonel Gaddafi.

His election comes at a critical time, with security still not established across the country and western Libya seeing outbreaks of renewed violence, our correspondent adds.

    what is the real history of the muslim brotherhood and who controls islam?

    • The real history of the Muslim brotherhood connects to The Honourable East India Company controlled by The Worshipful Company of Mercers and various stockholders at the time based in Switzerland. Its all in my article I wrote on the anti-islam movie events recently. Islam is almost all mastered by the Vatican like the rest of the World. Only the Shia Caliph stands in the way of the Temporal Power of the Pope and therefore has to be subordinated or destroyed. Most of Islam bows to Jesuit trained King Juan Carlos of Spain controlling the region through the dictatorship Arab-league through branches of the new unHoly Roman Empire (Congress of Vienna and Treaty of Verona) like the powerful Union for the Mediterranean controlling North Africa and the Middle East. All control is done through the inter-religious dialogue systems which are veils for Roman empire powers. Check into the role of Order of Malta Knight, Felice Pallavicini and that other Pallavicini Yahya in all of this. Islam was mastered in the first place to destroy the Jewish control over Jerusalem and to aid in the crushing of true-Christianity by proxy for the Papacy. It turned on the Papacy quickly but it still aided the Papacy through its designs against true-Christianity. Look at how Christian Africa once was and how Muslim it became. Islam has always been a sword of the Papacy even if they have been on opposite sides at times and its all through its design and creation and who by originally. By the way it was the Congress of Vienna that made Switzerland the neutral safe zone of the World for the World’s elite families.
