Libyan PM Forms Committee to Discuss Public Sector Salary Increase


Libya’s Prime Minister, Abdel-Hamid Dbaiba issued Decision No. 6 of 2021 which formed a ministerial committee to draft a salary increase proposal for public sector workers.

The committee is headed by the Ministers of Finance, Civil Service, Transportation, and Labor and Rehabilitation.

Minister of Finance, Khaled Al-Mabrouk Abdullah sent a letter to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, calling for it to disregard all previous nominations issued by the previous government.

In the letter, he clarified that this is regarding the nomination of financial observers and their assistants to work abroad in embassies, consulates, and international missions.

On Thursday, the National Commission for Human Rights in Libya (NCHRL) strongly denounced the continued delay in the payment of salaries of public sector employees. This is blamed on the arbitrary administrative procedures carried out by the Central Bank of Libya (CBL), and the Audit Bureau.
