Cyrenaica declares autonomy

By Essam Mohamed

Libya’s oil-rich eastern region declared self-governance on Saturday (June 1st). A day after the announcement by the Cyrenaica Transitional Council, the General National Congress (GNC) discussed the issue and promised to release a statement condemning the declaration.

“Cyrenaica is a federal territory within the framework of the Libyan state, and as of Saturday June 1st, will start to run its own affairs,” said Cyrenaica council chief Ahmed Zubair al-Senussi, speaking in the eastern city of Marj.
