The Great Man-Made River (GMR, النهر الصناعي العظيم) is a network of pipes that supplies water from the Sahara Desert in Libya, from the Nubian Sandstone Aquifer System fossil aquifer. Some sources cite it as the largest engineering project ever undertaken. The Guinness World Records 2008 book has acknowledged this as the world's largest irrigation project. According to its website, it is the largest underground network of pipes and aqueducts in the world. It consists of more than 1300 wells, most more than 500 m deep, and supplies 6,500,000 m³ of freshwater per day to the cities of Tripoli, Benghazi, Sirt and elsewhere. Muammar al-Gaddafi has described it as the "Eighth Wonder of the World." http://www.galenfrysinger.com/man_made_river_libya.htm

He won 26 out of 51 votes, and said that he expected to choose his cabinet ministers within two weeks. El-Keib is an award-winning electrical engineering professor who has taught at the University of Tripoli as well as numerous US universities. He most recently worked at the Petroleum Institute in the United Arab Emirates.
