LIBYA: TOBRUK PARLIAMENT VOTES PREMIER TODAY, RISK OF TWO PARALLEL GOVERNMENTS – Today in Libya the vote of the Tobruk House of Representatives is expected, chaired by Aguila Saleh, called to choose the new premier, among the former Minister of the Interior of the Serraj government, Fathi Bashagha, measurer, and the unknown Khaled Al-Bibas, front candidate. While the premier of the national unity government Abdul Hamid Dbeibah, disheartened by Tobruk in recent weeks, reiterated again on Tuesday in a TV speech that “he will continue to work until he transfers power to an elected authority” in a vote that would like to June.
If elected, Bashagha it will have about seven days to form a new government, which will have to be subjected to a vote of confidence, and to have the constitutional amendments approved, from which date the 14 months within which to hold the elections according to the roadmap approved by Tobruk would start. At this point we expect to see how this afternoon’s vote will go, how many consents will go to Bashagha, but certainly the risk that there are two parallel governments is very high. Dbeibah, in his speech to the nation, appealed directly to the people and already yesterday in the capital dozens of people took to the streets to demonstrate in support of the premier.
“Defeated in the military offensive two years ago, Saleh e Khalifa Haftar they are trying to enter Tripoli with Bashagha – was the comment of Ashraf Shah, former adviser of the Libyan High Council of State – They have not been able to enter on board a tank, they try on the shoulders of Bashagha“But this is an” illegitimate “move, Shah denounces speaking of today’s vote, which he defined as” a theft against the Libyan people, the roadmap is only an attempt to postpone and extend the mandate of this parliament “.
The Tripoli politician then urged the international community, “distracted” by the Ukrainian crisis, with Russia that “continues not working for the stability of Libya, to put pressure on Saleh and Haftar why they do not go ahead “with their plan and respect the roadmap of the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum which foresees that the vote should be organized by next June.
