The Head of the Presidential Council (PC), Fayez Al-Sirraj, has accused some of the PC members of starting conflicts inside the PC instead of ending them outside of it.
Speaking in an interview with TRT Arabi TV Channel, Al-Sirraj said some Libyan parties are keen on having the current status quo persist in the country.
“I call on the members to be rational and wise as they tackle national issues.” Al-Sirraj added, saying there had been many incidents of inflexibility among the Libyan parties for political and ideological reasons.
He also indicated that his intention as the Head of the PC from the start was to unite all Libyans around a national project that discards foreign intervention and preserves Libyan sovereignty.
“I don’t think that the current political conflicts can turn violent.” Al-Sirraj added, explaining that there can be no elections in Libya until the constitutional basis is adopted.
These remarks came after three PC members: Ahmed Maiteeg, Fathi Al-Mijibri, and Abdelsalam Kajman, had issued a statement accusing Al-Sirraj of having an individual and personal approach to decision making in vital issues in the country.
The three members sent a letter on Saturday to Al-Sirraj and called on him to look for the best interest of the country over his own personal interests.
