In his statement, Libyan Prime Minister Abdulhamid Dibeybe suggested holding parliamentary elections at the end of 2022 and starting preparations for this in June.
Abdulhamid Dibeybe said, “I will not stay in the mission for even a minute after the parliamentary elections are held and the new government is formed.”
Dibeybe emphasized that he talked to the officials of the Supreme Election Board about the elections and that if the committee does not stand by the people, they should look for alternative solutions.
Dibeybe stated that after the announcement of the election calendar, he expected reactions from different circles towards him and his government, and said, “The United Nations and Stephanie Williams should hear the voice of the people. No solution will be found without the wishes of the Libyans.”
The House of Representatives in Tobruk elected Fethi Başağa as prime minister in the session on February 10, which many of the deputies in the west of the country did not attend, on the grounds that the mission period of the current National Unity Government expired on December 24, 2021. On March 1, he gave a vote of confidence to the Başağa government.
The Prime Minister of the Libyan National Unity Government, Abdulhamid Dibeybe, accused the House of Representatives of deviating from the road map set in the Geneva Agreement, and said that he was on duty and would hand over the task to an elected government.
