The Libyan Prime Minister of the government of National Unity (GNU), Abdul Hamid Dbeibah, has indicated that his government is ready to hold elections but only after the High National Elections Commission announces its readiness.
Dbeibah added in a televised statement on Tuesday that national reconciliation didn’t go through in a full manner in Libya because of the inflexibility of some parties.
He added that his government backs up real national reconciliation that leads to parliamentary and presidential elections based on a constitutional framework.
Dbeibaha reiterated that he won’t sit idly by and watch some parties cause harm to the living conditions of Libyans, stressing that the sacking of the National Oil Corporation’s (NOC) chairman Mustafa Sanallah and replacing him with Farhat Bengdara “was to resolve the blockade on oil production and exports”.
“We wanted to right the wrong legal status of the board of the NOC.” Dbeibah said.
The Libyan PM said talk about a deal to share power is just “delusion”, denying the rumors about a political deal being behind Sanallah’s sacking.
He stressed that those rumors were made by the party that lost everything after giving up everything for the sake of winning. Dbeibah also said the change of the NOC board was a necessary step.
