TRIPOLI - Libya's ruling National Transitional Council (NTC) decided on Sunday to keep the interim government in power in the run up to a June election, its leader said, quashing rumors of a reshuffle that has sowed uncertainty in the strife-torn state.

The NTC is the unelected body internationally recognized as the ultimate power in the country after the overthrow of dictator Muammar Gaddafi last year.

The council set up an interim government in November to take care of the day-to-day running of services - but both organizations have faced regular criticism for its failure to impose its authority on a country still awash with weapons.
