Tripoli, 27 February. The Prime Minister of the Government of National Unity (GNU) of Libya, Abd al-Hamid Dbeiba, said that international efforts aimed at holding elections in the country meet the requirements of his cabinet.

“I commend the efforts of Libya’s friends and the UN mission to promote fair and fair national elections,” the prime minister said in a statement.

The head of the GNU stressed that these efforts correspond to the requirement of the Cabinet of Ministers to stop the transitional stages. He promised that he would continue to serve his people, keep the peace and lead the country towards elections. Dbeiba’s message came after UN envoy Abdoulaye Batili announced an international consensus to hold elections in 2023.

It should be noted that the term of office of the GNU, headed by Dbeiba, has expired long ago. The country’s parliament elected a new prime minister, Fathi Bashaga, who formed his own cabinet of ministers. However, Turkey and some Western countries continue to support the GNU and conclude illegal deals with the structure in order to strengthen their own influence in the region.

Earlier, the US hosted a meeting to resolve the Libyan crisis. The purpose of the negotiations was to discuss the development of the internal political situation. However, none of the representatives of the North African country was invited to the meeting.
