The National Forces Alliance, one of the largest political parties in Libya, has appointed a new president for it following the death of its former president and the first prime minister in post-Qaddafi Libya, Mahmoud Jibril.

The Secretary-General of the National Forces Alliance, Khaled al-Marimi, said that he was assigned to chair the party, adding that “the cohesion of comrades within the Alliance is the most important thing that can be done now.”

“I thank my comrades for the trust they have given me, and I hope that I will live up to this level of trust,” al-Marimi added, in press statements. “I will continue to carry the message and project of the National Forces Alliance, which was laid by Dr. Mahmoud Jibril, before his death.”

Jibril died in Egypt on April 5, after he was infected with the novel coronavirus.

The Alliance of National Forces party has swept the results of the first elections in Libya in 2012 in most of the country’s electoral districts.
