Bashagha: Our budget distribution will be fair and equitable
Libya’s oil blockade would likely end if the central bank supplies the funds for the budget that parliament approved this week, Libya’s parliament-appointed Prime Minister, Fathi Bashaghaa, told Reuters.
Speaking in the central coastal city of Sirte where he is based, Bashagha also said he did not expect Libya’s political stalemate to trigger a new war.
“As soon as our government receives the budget and it is distributed equitably according to what we mentioned in the budget, then the residents of the fields and the oil crescent will not mind re-exporting the oil,” he said in an interview.
He added that there was a lot of anger at what he called illegal spending by Dbeibah’s government, including corruption and payments to armed groups. Dbeibah has previously denied financial wrongdoing.
