Fethi Başağa, who was elected as the Prime Minister by the House of Representatives in Tobruk, located in the east of Libya, announced that he had arrived in the capital Tripoli in a video statement he shared at night.

In his statement, Fethi Başağa used the words, “Alhamdulillah, we have reached the capital city. The welcome was very appropriate. Congratulatory statements have not been interrupted for three hours. Tomorrow we will hold a press conference and make statements. We will call out to the Libyan people.”

After Başağa reached Tripoli, clashes broke out between the supporters of the National Unity Government led by Abdulhamid Dibeybe and the armed groups supporting Başağa.


The sources of the National Unity Government reported that the 444th Brigade of the Ministry of Defense, after the clashes, ensured that Başağa left the city in a faithful form.

In a written statement made by the press office of the Başağa government, it was confirmed that Başağa and some of his cabinet members had left the capital Tripoli.

In the statement, it was mentioned that Başağa left the city “to fulfill his commitment to start working peacefully in the capital Tripoli, as well as to prevent the safety of citizens and bloodshed”.


After the presidential and parliamentary elections in Libya could not be held on the planned 24 December 2021, the House of Representatives in Tobruk elected Başağa as prime minister in a session that many deputies in the west of the country did not attend.

The Prime Minister of the Libyan National Unity Government, Abdulhamid Dibeybe, accused the House of Representatives of departing from the roadmap determined in the Geneva Agreement, and declared that he was at his duty, but that he would hand it over to an elected government.

There have been two others in the country led by Dibeybe and Başağa for about 3 months. This situation increases the anxiety that Libya is dragged into a spiral of violence again.
