No Peace For Libya. Dbeibah Offside, Bashaga Will Be The New Premier

There is no peace for Libya. Now it is the turn of the now former prime minister Dbeibah to play the role of the pooper. According to the Libyan press, Dbeibah miraculously escaped an attack.

An armed group allegedly attacked his convoy last Tuesday. But there are several doubts about the true nature of the attack. Dbeibah struggles to stay in power, but now his chances are slim.

The parliament of Tobruk has given the green light to the formation of a new government of national unity. With the mediation of Aquila Saleh, the parliament appointed former Interior Minister Fathi Bashaga to form the new government. The elections, according to the indications coming from the parliamentary assembly, are once again postponed. Before going to the vote, it will be necessary for the government and parliament to rewrite some laws of the transitional constitution.

Saleh hopes to have the elections held within the next 14 months. The agreement signed between Aquila Saleh, Fathi Bashaga and General Haftar holds. In recent weeks, it was Saleh who mediated a meeting between Bashaga and the commander of the Libyan National Army.

In terms of international relations, the three-party agreement guarantees Turkey and Russia to maintain solid relations with the African country rich in energy resources.

In fact, the east-based Parliament on Thursday voted unanimously to appoint Fathi Bashagha as prime minister of the new government. Parliament Spokesman Abdullah Belhaq said the House granted confidence to Fathi Bashagha as prime minister, with the unanimous consent of the representatives. At the same session, the Speaker of Parliament, Aqila Saleh, said he received a letter of recommendation from the High Council of State for Fathi Bashagha to head the next government.

Bashaga, will present the members of his government to parliament within a week.

The first move could be to entrust the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to Ageila Elabbar, a university professor in Benghazi and, in the recent past, cultural manager of the Libyan Embassy in Washington in the United States. Elabbar is considered the ideal character for a balanced dialogue both for the internal forces of the country, and to coordinate the position of the government with the activities of the United Nations, in this period that will lead to the elections.

Dbeibah, however, does not let go. He could be behind last Thursday’s protests in Tripoli. A group of protesters staged a stand in front of the Parliament headquarters in Tripoli Wednesday to demand the Parliament and the High Council of State withdraw from the political scene.

The protesters expressed their rejection of any new transitional stage after the parliament decided to choose a new government on Thursday. They raised slogans demanding to go to elections and clarify the nature of the force majeure announced by the speaker of Tobruk-based Parliament, Aqila Saleh, and how to end it. Other protesters sharing the same demands protested in Martyrs Square in central Tripoli.

On Tuesday night, Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibah delivered a speech in which he called on the Libyan people to take to the streets and express their rejection of what he called “the political class holding to power” and say no to any new transitional stages before organizing elections. A clear attack on the three-way ticket formed by Saleh, Bashaga and Haftar.

Those idiots destroyed their own country for the U.S. Empire,now the stupid Ukrainians are doing the same.

Libya, as soon to be Europe and the Western world, is a “Balkanized” country and society and is EXACTLY what the Kalergi Plan will result in for the entire world if communist based color revolutions continue. They aren’t really communist party based but merely globalist totalitarian manipulations as usual. People are easily controlled when there is no functioning government and that’s why the people behind these events need to be stopped otherwise we will lose Civilizations and be run by unregulated totalitarian barbarism.
