Libyan Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibeh is out of office but much of what will happen depends on his next move.
A few days ago the questions were whether Dbeibeh could hang on to power a little longer and what could happen if he is forced out. Now the House of Representatives (HoR) has had its way and replaced him with his fellow Misratan Fathis Bashaga, a former interior minister and sworn enemy of many lawmakers including speaker Aqila Saleh. It was clear that the HoR was heading toward removing Dbeibeh, deciding in a Feb. 7 session to replace the premier after less than a year in office. Bashaga now has two weeks to form a government.
