Libya’s new government was approved on Wednesday during a session cut short due to protests outside.
The new administration has been put together from liberal and islamist parties by Prime Minister Ali Zeidan.
Congress was elected in July, but the initial formation of the government was rejected because some of the candidates had been part of former leader Muammar Gaddafi’s regime.
Militia power and prevalence is the main concern for ordinary Libyans, with many complaining that these armed groups have too much power and are not controlled by the state.
One such militia is suspected of killing US ambassador Chris Stevens in Benghazi on September 11.
Government committees that are supposed to integrate the militias with the regular uniformed police and army have made little progress so far.
