Libya’s Presidential Council announced on Tuesday that it has formed a unity government aimed at ending the chaos that has engulfed the country for the past years.

The Unity Presidential Council said in a statement that it has agreed on a 32-member Cabinet, drawn of representatives from across the country.

In December, Libyan parties signed in the Moroccan city of Skhirat a political agreement to form the unity government and established a Unity Presidential Council.

The agreement was signed by representatives of all parties taking part in the inter-Libyan dialogue, held under the aegis of the UN support mission in Libya, mainly the Tobrouk agreement (recognized by the international community), the National General Congress, called the Tripoli parliament, independent figures and representatives of the civil society.

According to the U.N-brokered deal, the new government should be based in Tripoli, and will have 10 days to win the internationally-recognized parliament’s endorsement.
