Libyan Parliament Speaker Aqila Saleh described the Government of National Government (GNU) as illegitimate, pointing out that the dealings of some countries and the United Nations with GNU after the withdrawal of confidence from it fueled the situation and contributed to the divide in Libya.
In an interview with France 24, Saleh accused GNU, led by Abdul Hamid Dbeibeh, of failing to run state affairs after corruption spread and its misplaced spending of more than 120 billion dinars (about $24 billion).
Parliament Speaker explained that elections are the solution to the Libyan crisis, and there must be a single government to supervise these elections, pointing out that the problem lies in the lack of a unified executive authority.
Saleh stressed that the Libyan government assigned by the Parliament, led by Fathi Bashagha, is the legitimate government and should be given the opportunity at least 3 or 4 months before being judged.
The Speaker of Parliament also stressed the need to dismantle armed groups in accordance with the political agreement.
