Libya's acting prime minister, Abdullah Al-Thinni, on Wednesday refused to hand power to newly elected premier Ahmed Maiteeq because of questions over his appointment, and demanded lawmakers resolve the political dispute. The North African state, struggling with growing unrest, now has two prime ministers and a parliament deeply split among Islamist, anti-Islamist and regional factions that will complicate any swift resolution. Thinni said he had received conflicting orders from Libya's divided parliament over the legitimacy of Maiteeq's election and would continue in his caretaker post until the situation was clarified by the General National Congress.
