Libyan Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibeh made statements about the House of Representatives’ (HoR) Fathi Bashagha decision and the elections through the Government of National Unity (GNU) social media account.
Dbeibeh stated that they are planning to hold elections in June and that they have implemented a plan which he called “handing over the trust to the people.”
According to the plan described by Dbeibeh, the constitutional referendum will take place first, adding that the elected parliament will complete the draft constitution.
Furthermore, Prime Minister Dbeibeh announced that the presidential elections will be postponed until the country adopts a permanent constitution.
The elections initially planned on December 24, 2021, were postponed due to various legal and technical reasons.
Dbeibeh, who holds politicians responsible for the conflict environment in Libya, called on HoR to listen to the demands of the Libyan people.
On the anniversary of the February 17 revolution that took place in 2011, former Interior Minister Fathi Bashagha had been elected as the prime minister of the transitional period by the HoR.
Dbeibeh had stated that he did not recognize the decision and would remain in office.
