The Egyptian President, Abdel Fattah El Sisi, has telephoned the Libyan Prime Minister-elect, Abdul-Hamid Dbeibah, reiterating Cairo’s support for the executive authority elected by the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF).
Dbeibah said on Twitter on Wednesday that El Sisi expressed his country’s readiness to cooperate with the soon-to-be-formed national unity government in Libya to ensure stability and security in the two neighboring countries.
In the meantime, Dbeibah said he was looking forward to building strong and strategic relations with Egypt and all neighboring as well as friend countries.
On Friday, Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF) members cast votes in Geneva and finally agreed to select the Head and members of the Presidential Council as well as the new Prime Minister of the Libyan executive authority that will lead the war-torn country to general elections on December 24, 2021.
After voting for individual candidates failed, four lists that included candidates for the top Libyan executive authority positions were presented as entities to run the executive authority in the upcoming interim period.
The winning list received 39 votes and it included Mohammed Menfi (representative of the east), as Head of the Presidential Council; Mossa Al-Koni, member representative of the south; Abdullah Al-Lafi, member representative of the west and Abdul-Hamid Dbeibah, as Prime Minister.
