Libyan activists launched a hashtag on social media calling for the expulsion of the British ambassador, Caroline Horndal, from their country, after the statement of the London embassy in support of the national unity government until the elections.
Within a few hours of issuing the British embassy’s statement, via its Twitter account, the hashtag #Expel_British_Ambassador_from_Libya was issued, the most frequently traded list on the site, in response to what the activists described as “unacceptable transgression.”
One of the activists said in a tweet that “what the British embassy has said about its recognition and support for the Dabaiba government until the elections are held, should not go unnoticed.”
He continued: “Demonstrations in all Libyan cities against this blatant interference!”
Another activist added: “The active national forces in the east, west and south must urgently meet and put aside their political differences in order to save the homeland. The homeland will not be saved by the bloggers’ tweets or their publications. .

In another tweet, the head of the Supreme Authority of the National Forces Alliance, Tawfiq Al-Shehibi, considered: “The statements of the British ambassador on Independence Day, which necessarily represent her country’s position, are a blatant interference that shows a lack of respect and the lowest degree of diplomatic interaction between countries.”
Activists stressed that “Libya is not an English boycott. The expulsion of the British ambassador from Libya should be a popular demand for popular demonstrations to embarrass prone politicians.”
