The Presidential Council issued a decision to transfer the General Directorate of Central Security from the Ministry of Interior to an affiliate of the Prime Ministry with a juridical personality and an independent financial edict.

The PC's decision came after a group of the Central Security Directorate protested in front of the Prime Minister's office on Sunday, against the mandate of Emad Trabelsi as Chief of General Security and Checkpoints of the Ministry of Interior.

A number of the Eighth Force Battalion and Central Security of Abu-Salim have surrounded the headquarters of the Prime Minister in Sikka road in Tripoli following the issuance of this decision.
