Libya: energy minister sacks state oil firm chairman

Libyan oil minister Mohamed Aoun sacked Mustafa Sanallah, chairman of the national oil company NOC, and appointed a new acting director.

The board of directors of the company will meet to elect a new chairman, a decree from the ministry said.

Recall that in September, Mr Aoun had suspended Mr Sanallah, accusing him of insubordination over his travels abroad without permission from the ministry.
