Al-Tekbali: Libyan PM Will Not Be Allowed to Work Due to Militia Pressure


Ali Al-Takbali, Member of the Libyan Parliament confirmed that disputes were revolving around the formation of the new government, due to pressure by “ideological Islamists”, the international community, and militias legitimised by the Government of National Accord (GNA).

“The new Prime Minister Abdel-Hamid Dbaiba will not be able to present anything in the face of these pressures,” Al-Takbali said. He noted that the militias now control security in the capital, Tripoli.

“All the controversy surrounding the National Unity Government (NUG) is a scenario designed so that there is no legitimate government.” He explained that “this scenario is that Dbaiba goes to the committee of the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF), in parallel with the attempt of the Islamists to obtain parliamentary legitimacy with executive legitimacy.”

Spokesman for the Libyan Parliament, Abdullah Belhaq confirmed that the Parliamentary session to grant confidence to the upcoming government would be held either in Sirte or Tobruk on 8 March.
