Ahmed al-Sharkasi, a member of the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF), said he views Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibeh as a “threat” to Libya following reports of the premier’s attempt to shake up the leadership of the Libyan Post Telecommunications & Information Technology Company (LPTIC).
“The government is seeking to change the management of LPTIC to control the company’s money which is estimated to worth at more than thirty billion,” al-Sharkasi claimed via Twitter.
He alleged that Dbeibeh intends to use the company’s money to either “blow up the elections or gather popular support for the government.”
“This government drained its savings from the budget’s emergency clause in violation of the law, and when it was about to run out of money, it turned to other institutions that have funds to exploit them,” the LPDF member claimed.
Al-Sharkasi acknowledged that suspicions of corruption are hovering around the current chairman of LPTIC Faisal Qarqab. However, he said that Dbeibeh is “more dangerous” than Qarqab.
