Libyans take to streets calling for overthrowing biased parliament

Thousands of Libyans took to streets, especially the Tripoli Martyrs Square, on Friday evening to demonstrate their rejection to the withdrawal of confidence in the Government of National Unity (GNU) and call for toppling the Libyan House of Representatives (HoR) for its illegal practices.

At the Tripoli Martyrs Square rally, the Libyan Prime Minister, Abdul-Hamid Dbeibah, addressed Libyans and reiterated that he wouldn’t allow division to take place in the country once again, adding that there was no way Libya would go back to war and armed conflicts.

Dbeibah added, as thousands of people chanted support for the GNU at the Martyrs Square, that his government was working on building a unified army under the flag of Libya not under any other convictions or affiliations: whether tribal or personal.

The Libyan Prime Minister said the money spent by the GNU is owned by the Libyan people and that is why the youths were given support funds for their social lives and work opportunities, adding that the Savings Bank was instructed to start processing housing loans for the youth.

“The GNU’s message is yet to life and no to death, that is why we’re going to make sure the Libyan fortunes are distributed fairly to citizens through the local administration authorities.” Dbeibah said.

He added that the holding of general elections is a target for the government and the people and they will make sure to stick to it, saying no party or individual can rule the country and the people without their consent.
