The Prime Minister of the Government of National Unity (GNU), Abdul Hamid Dbeibeh, stated that the government will remain in office until the elections scheduled for June, in the statements made on Monday in response to remarks made by the speaker of the eastern-based parliament, Aguila Saleh.
Speaking to the Libyan Al-Ahrar channel, PM Dbeibeh described parliament speaker Saleh’s statements as “desperate steps to trigger segregation.”
In addition to this, Dbeibeh stated that the government will fulfill all its powers and duties without neglecting it until the elections.
Aguila Saleh stated that they will choose the new Prime Minister of the transitional period on February 8.
In parallel, Saleh had stated that the parliament’s roadmap committee would begin receiving nominations for the post of prime minister.
No nomination applications have been received so far.
At the same time, 62 members of the parliament expressed their support to Prime Minister Dbeibeh last week.
