The Tripoli-based Minister of Education of Presidential Council, Osman Abdul-Jalil, said in a statement that the purpose of delaying the start of the new school year to mid-October was to coincide with the date set by the Interim Government in the eastern part of the country.

Abdul-Jalil pointed out that the aim of the delay is to unite the educational process inside the country and to exclude it from all political strife.
