Bashagha says his government will only start working from Tripoli
Prime Minister-designate Fathi Bashagha stressed that his government had already started the steps towards accession to power, saying that his government would sit in no other city than Tripoli.
In an interview with Al-Wasat TV, Bashagha explained that positive signals had been seen from some countries, especially from Qatar and the United Arab Emirates, adding that Cairo had not interfered in any way in the formation of the cabinet of his government.
He indicated that he had no reservations about any country and that he would work in the interest of Libya and in the interest of any country that cooperated with his government, explaining that some of the statements rejecting his government were motivated by pressure and influenced by money. .
Bashagha added that he was looking for a real consensus, saying that while Haftar was represented in the finance and defense ministries, Burkan Al-Ghadab (Military operation which fought against Haftar’s forces in western Libya between 2019 and 2020) was represented in six ministries, stressing that its ministerial formation was balanced and not based on a “quota system”.
Bashagha indicated that there were parties who tried to create a rift between his government and Turkey by saying that his government was influenced by the Egyptian agenda, but the elders and members of the House of Representatives in the region Oriental expressed their willingness to clarify the full picture, pointing out that Haftar’s sons, Saddam and Belqassem, had been to Turkey and were on their way to Qatar to clarify the issue.
Meanwhile, Bashagha said the positions of the head of the High Council of State, Khalid Al-Mishri, are fluctuating and unstable as he has come under heavy pressure to change his position regarding the new government.
