In a recorded speech after granting confidence to the new Libyan government on Tuesday by the House of Representatives (HOR), Fathi Bashagha, the new Prime Minister, confirmed that the handover process will be smooth and safe in the capital, Tripoli, without any problems.
Bashagha said that he has begun “taking legal and administrative measures. And he contacted all the security and military authorities,” adding that his government has “arrangements with them, and the handover process will be smooth and safe without any problem.”
The new Prime Minister stressed that the government will seek reconciliation, participation, and stability.
He said, “I did not come for revenge or settling accounts, but rather we came to build the country and to extend our hands to everyone.”
He added, “We are committed to holding the elections on schedule, as approved by HoR in the road map.”
He confirmed his intention to cooperate with the House of Representatives, the High Council of State and the Presidential Council.
Bashagha described granting confidence to the new government as “a fair, clear and transparent process.”
It is noteworthy that the House of Representatives granted on Tuesday confidence to the new government, headed by Fathi Bashagha, with a majority of 92 votes out of 101, to succeed the government of Abdul Hamid Dbeibeh, who refused to handover and announced his continuation as a prime minister.
