The chairman of Libya's ruling National Transitional Council has announced he will not be a part of Libya's next government.

Although Mahmoud Jibril has been a major figure in the conflict, political infighting in the NTC has opened up potentially damaging rifts.

Jibril's announcement came after news of a potential cabinet reshuffle began to emerge on Sunday.
