10:18 pm
minister. handover of power to this new government this new interim government the government of national unity today really excited people we can see that people libyans feel now that there is a glimmer of hope that their country can become can become a democratic and civilian state but the the road ahead for the government of national unity is not going to be easy they're going to be tasked with forcing over 20000 foreign fighters out of the country they're also going to be tasked with unifying state institutions the no. syria's currently divided between forces in western libya and the forces loyal to the warlord holy father hafter told a lot of challenges ahead of this new government and they're only going to be leading this country for 9 months lections arse nationwide elections are such to take place in these in december this year but for them to make the feeling here among the most libyans is one of hope and one of of one of hope and one of
10:19 pm
excitement to see a peaceful transition of power and and that this government may hope in bettering or improving basic services for its citizens u.s. president joe biden is launching his helpers here tour in pennsylvania this hour to promote the 1.9 trillion dollar coded relief bill he signed into law on thursday the president traveled there from the white house to highlight the economic support it will give most americans as well as expanding health care to help manage the pandemic the biden ministration policy had 5 partisan support among voters with 7 out of 10 wanting it to become law but it passed congress without any republican support what has corresponded to me how kit is life for us in delaware county pennsylvania if this relief bill is already popular can be why does he need to go out and senate. well because for the reasons you mentioned
10:20 pm
just a moment ago given the fact that conservatives in the u.s. congress didn't support it that's really true of a lot of the voters in this county and around the country many conservatives did not vote for joe biden and are skeptical about this plan thinking that it is too big of a price tag that there's too much not focused on code relief that's in here so that's part of the reason why joe biden is going to be crisscrossing the country this week along with his vice president coming to harris her husband doug hoffman also the 1st lady of the united states dr jill biden they're all trying to sell this plan and also trying to win over the skeptics who have grown distrustful of government but it's going to be a tall order because of the divided nature of politics in the united states right now so that's part of the recently other part of the reason is this is a bit of a victory lap because for joe biden the state of pennsylvania is one of those battleground states that helped him win the white house so he's here to thank those
