Libya’s Conflicting Parties to Meet in Geneva to Appoint New Presidential Council


Libyan conflicting parties will meet in Geneva to appoint a new Presidential Council and a Prime Minister with two deputies, said advisor of the Libyan Parliament Speaker, Fathi Al-Marimi.

The meeting will be held next October, and the assigned government will be approved by the Libyan Parliament, he noted.

“The new government will be formed in order to unify Libyan institutions, especially economic and financial ones,” Al Marimi said.

On 10 September, Morocco hosted dialogue sessions between the High State Council and the Parliament, which ended with compromises over the state’s sovereign positions.

On 14 September, the Interim Government headed by Prime Minister Abdullah Al-Thinni submitted its resignation to the Parliament Speaker, Ageela Saleh, after large-scale demonstrations broke out in the east of the country. Protesters took to the streets to express their anger against permanent power cuts, fuel shortages and the high cost of living.

Last Wednesday, the Prime Minister of the Government of National Accord (GNA), Fayez al-Sarraj, announced his intention to step down by the end of October.

Following that, the leader of Libyan National Army (LNA) Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar announced on Friday the reopening of oil ports and the resumption of oil production.
