Libya (AP) - A former RIT professor who was elected Prime Minister of Libya last month has been voted out of power.
Mustafa Abu Shagur was running RIT's program in dubai last year, and prior to that, he was an engineering professor at the Henrietta campus.
Libya's parliament passed a no-confidence vote in the newly-elected prime minister Sunday, removing him from his post. Abu Shagur had until Sunday to form a Cabinet or risk losing his job. His initial list of ministers was criticized for not being diverse enough.
Abu Shagur was Libya's first elected prime minister after last year's overthrow of dictator Moammar Gadhafi. The General National Congress voted 125 versus 44 in favor of removing him as prime minister.
