A source close to the Presidential Council has told Ean Libya that the Head of the council Fayez Al-Sirraj has six advisers – four of whom have families living in Egypt and the remaining two have families living in the UAE.

The source added that that advisers are pushing Al-Sirraj not to name the countries supporting Khalifa Haftar’s offensive on Tripoli because of Al-Sirraj’s political ambitions, which oblige him not to boycott such countries in order to have a chance in the future negotiations.

The source also indicated that Al-Sirraj is refusing to appoint new advisers despite insistence by different political figures.

Al-Sirraj has been the Head of the Presidential Council since its formation in Skhirat, Morocco on December 17, 2015.
