ibya's parliament gave Prime Minister-elect Mustafa Abushagur the boot on Sunday, rejecting his second slate of proposed cabinet ministers and voting him out in a no-confidence motion. Abushagur, Libya's first elected prime minister, had been seen as a compromise candidate between liberals and Islamists in the legislature, but regional and partisan disagreements had stymied his efforts to form a government. The vote to remove him from office was 125 to 44, with 17 abstentions. Parliament has three or four weeks to choose a new prime minister.
