The Prime Minister of the UN-backed accord government, Fayiz Al-Serraj said his Presidential Council members and Ministers of the Government of National Accord are to move to Tripoli in days.

PM Al-Serraj said, in a televised interview with Jordan-based Libya Channel on Thursday, that a new security plan will allow unity government to move to Libyan capital from Tunis, hoping at the same token that Tobruk parliament would still endorse his government.

Al-Serraj added that a security plan agreed with police and military forces in Tripoli, as well as some armed groups, would allow the UN-backed Presidential Council and the government it nominated to move from Tunis to Tripoli.

“We, the government of national accord, will be in the capital Tripoli soon … within a few days,” He uttered.

“The armed groups will remain in their camps until an agreement is found with them about whether their members will be integrated and young people absorbed within certain programmes according the security plan,” he added.

However, on the ground, this move might kick off a new bloody conflict in the capital as the Salvation Government’s PM, Khalifa Al-Ghweil, warned earlier the GNA of entering Tripoli and if they did “they will be fought out of it”.

While, the Tobruk parliament has also remained passive as many other parties in Libya. Its continuous failure to reach quorum to vite for or against the GNA new cabinet has pushed the latter to react singlehandedly.
