Eleven deputies demanded the presidency of the Libyan parliament to withdraw confidence from the national unity government led by Abdel Hamid Dabaiba, because of “its continuation to waste public money outside the country and the failure to implement its pledges to improve public services inside Libya, in addition to exceeding its powers and interfering in the military field.”
The signatories of the statement addressed a letter to Parliament Speaker Aguila Saleh, in which they stated that “the government did not abide by what it pledged before Parliament in the session of granting confidence last March, and it began to spend funds under the name 12/1 of the budget in amounts estimated at billions in the countries of Turkey and Tunisia, without To show an improvement in the services that have further deteriorated.”
They pointed out that this government “has become a burden on the Libyan citizen as a result of its high expenditures.”

The deputies added that “the absence of coordination and management that has required the government since its formation proves its failure in managing the state and in achieving a small part of the citizen’s needs.”
The deputies concluded that all these reasons combined make it necessary to demand the withdrawal of confidence from the national unity government, because it “increased the gap between the people of the country and sowed hatred among them.”
The signatories sharply criticized the Prime Minister, Abdel Hamid Dabaiba, and considered that his statements, which they described as “irresponsible”, threaten security and civil peace in Libya, in addition to his “robbing the competencies of many ministries and public institutions, clear interference in military affairs and jumping on the powers and efforts of Military Committee 5+5”.
And in the middle of last March, the government took power and officially began to exercise its functions and works after obtaining the confidence of Parliament, after years of ruling two warring administrations, one in the east of the country and the other in the west, and thus represented the best hope for Libyans to get out of the crisis and chaos in which the country has been living for a decade.
