New Libyan Interim Government Sworn In, Amid Hope Of Elections Later In 2021

On March 15th, the new Libyan interim government was approved by parliament and sworn in.

It is simply to lead the country in a unified manner, until elections later in 2021.

Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibah, selected at UN-sponsored talks in February 2021 alongside an interim three-member presidency council, was sworn in before the House of Representatives in the eastern city of Tobruk.

The United Nations-supervised process is aimed at uniting the country, building on an October ceasefire between the competing administrations in the country’s east and west.

Dbeibah’s swearing-in comes after Parliament approved his cabinet several days earlier, in a move hailed by key leaders and foreign powers as “historic”.

His government includes two deputy prime ministers, 26 ministers and six ministers of state, with five posts including the key foreign affairs and justice portfolios handed to women, a first in Libya.

“This will be the government of all Libyans,” Dbeibah said after the vote. “Libya is one and united.”

This is a significant breakthrough, since the Government of National Accord (GNA) was supported by the UN and failed to unite the sides, it simply caused more chaos due to lack of authority.

Dbeibah’s administration is expected to replace the UN-recognised Government of National Accord (GNA), based in Tripoli, and a parallel cabinet with its headquarters in the east, under the de facto control of forces loyal to renegade military commander Khalifa Haftar.

Outgoing GNA head Fayez al-Sarraj has said he is “fully ready to hand over” power, while Haftar last month offered “the support of the armed forces for the peace process”.

The UN Security Council on Friday called on all foreign forces to leave “without further delay”.

The chaos is not all gone, and elections need to be held that are fair and safe.

Turkey is sure to be unhappy with this outcome, as it signed a deal with the GNA to establish military bases in the country, as well as exploit its EEZ and extract resources from the Mediterranean, as well as from Libyan soil.

It is questionable if any of this will move forward with the new interim government, or after the elections. It is unlikely that it will.

“Free and fair elections”, is this a bad joke? The US can’t hold free and fair elections, and they’re supposed to happen in Libya? Forced “democratization” was the goal of the NATO regime change terror operation from the beginning. To advance the Jew World Order hegemony conquest project. And run scam elections for the JWO parasites to gain control of Libya to exploit it’s natural resources, victimise society, and prevent nationalist leaders like Gaddafi from using a different pluralist political system that Jews and Zionists didn’t control from doing a better job running the country than the JWO parasites would do.

Libya was essentially a pluralistic autocracy under Gaddafi. I’m not saying that this is the highest and best form of political system. The highest and best form is meritocracy. Which most political systems can be if they’re run properly. Only that the Libya was structurally a pluralistic government during the Gadaffi years that achieved notable success in using it’s oil revenue to lift society as a whole to a better standard of living.

Which was a better standard of living than what occurred from the Israel, zioGCC, zioNATO regime change operation produced, or is likely to occur from an Israel, zioGCC, zioNATO implemented government designed to victimize and exploit society.

“all adults had the right and duty to participate in the deliberation of their local Basic People’s Congress (BPC), whose decisions were passed up to the GPC (administered by Gadaffi) for consideration and implementation as national policy. The BPCs were in theory the repository of ultimate political authority and decision making, embodying what Gaddafi termed direct “people’s power”. The 1977 declaration and its accompanying resolutions amounted to a fundamental revision of the 1969 constitutional proclamation, especially with respect to the structure and organization of the government at both national and subnational levels.”

As long as Turkish rats are sent back to Erdogania it’s a small step in the right direction.
