Igtet to announce new Libyan government by end of October
The former candidate for the Libyan Premier post, Basi Igtet, who is the leader of September 25 Demonstrations, has announced his plan to form a new all-agreed-upon Libyan government by the end of October.
In a social media footage from Tajoura – Tripoli , Igtet said that the government is needed by all Libyans who took to the public squares in Tripoli, Misuratam Gharyan, Al-Zawiya, Sabha and other cities on September 25 in support for their rights to choose their government and their country’s fate.
He also said that the government he will form is going to have consensus from all parties, not mentioning any further details, but saying that the September 25 movement will go on till they achieve their goals.
This came as UN-backed Libyan Political Agreement players met in Tunisia on Tuesday and proposed scrapping Article 08 about military and sovereign roles in exchange of having a new Presidential Council, with new leaders and new government under the UN supervision.
