Dozens of Libyans gathered today, Friday, in Martyrs Square in the capital, Tripoli, to express their support for the government of Abdel Hamid Dabaiba, and to call for the postponement of the elections.
The protesting Libyans raised slogans: “Friday of dropping Parliament,” “No to elections without a constitution,” and “No to wars, yes to construction,” according to what was monitored by Erm News.
The participants in the events flocked to the Martyrs Square in Tripoli, in response to the call of the Prime Minister of the Interim National Unity Government, Abdel Hamid al-Dabaiba, who was launched last Tuesday.
Dabaiba had called for a mass demonstration in the Martyrs Square in the capital, Tripoli, today, Friday, saying in front of a gathering of demonstrators rejecting the parliament’s decision to withdraw confidence from the government: “Our date, next Friday, is to express the Libyans .. from all cities, Tripoli, Tobruk, Kufra, Sebha And all the cities of Libya are in this field.”
This protest move comes days after the Libyan parliament voted on a decision to withdraw confidence from the government, and the day after calls for demonstrations to topple the parliament.
On Thursday, the Libyan Dar Al-Iftaa called for demonstrations in various cities and villages of the country, today, Friday, to call for the “overthrow” of Parliament.
A statement by Dar Al-Ifta, published on its Facebook page, said, “The Council for Research and Legal Studies at Dar Al-Ifta calls on all Libyans to go out in various cities and villages, on Friday, to call for the overthrow of the House of Representatives.”
According to the statement, “the fallen House of Representatives, legally, legally and morally, headed by Aqila Saleh, has gone too far in its corruption, and infiltrated its harm to people,” as he put it.
He added, “The abuse by Parliament reached its climax by issuing a decision to withdraw confidence from the government in order to impede its movement and narrow it down.”
On Tuesday, Parliament Spokesman Abdullah Blehaq announced the withdrawal of confidence from the Interim National Unity Government, but later confirmed that the national unity government would continue to carry out its daily work as a “caretaker” government.
The Dabaiba government faced criticism from several MPs because of its performance, and accusations of wasting public money. , and 582 million dinars.
Last Tuesday, dozens of demonstrators participated in a vigil in the Libyan capital, Tripoli, in rejection of the parliament’s decision to withdraw confidence from the government, expressing their support for the Dabaiba government.
Representatives considered that this government did not abide by the road map in which the House of Representatives granted it confidence, and that it became a government of division instead of being a government for all parties in order to reach elections on time, on December 24, as they put it.
