In reference to signs of cracking in the Libyan government, First Deputy Prime Minister Hussein al-Qatrani announced on Sunday that Prime Minister Abdel Hamid al-Dabaiba “does not have administrative experience,” stressing that “the decision is not in his hands.”
On Sunday, the First Deputy Prime Minister of the Libyan Government instructed the ministers and officials representing the Cyrenaica region in the Government of National Unity, not to implement any decisions or instructions issued by the Prime Minister without referring to him. Al-Qatrani’s instructions came during a meeting in Benghazi.
Al-Qatrani stressed the necessity of the prime minister’s commitment to treating the representatives of Cyrenaica as partners in the homeland, giving the region its right, and implementing all the terms of the political agreement.
He accused Dabaiba of “ignoring the demands and rights of the eastern region of Libya.”
The First Deputy Prime Minister denied the existence of efforts to form a parallel government in the east, pointing out that changing the government is possible.
He added that all the data indicate that the Libyan elections will not be held next December due to differences between the House of Representatives and the state.
Cyrenaica is one of the three regions that make up Libya. It is located in the east of the country, bordered by Egypt to the east, and the Mediterranean Sea to the north. Benghazi is the largest city in the region, and the population of the region exceeds 1.5 million people, according to the latest statistics. It enjoys a moderate climate throughout the seasons, and Arab tribes are spread in it, and it is the center of the Libyan parliament.
