More than 60 MPs issued Saturday a statement supporting the continuation of the Government of National Unity (GNU) led by Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibah, with a ministrial reshuffle that allows it to enforce its authority in all Libyan territories.

The statement signed by 62 deputies suggested giving Dbeibah the right to select his Cabinet while committing to representing all regions and taking responsibility for his choices.

According to the statement, the government should agree with the Presidential Council to make a ministrial reshuffle and agree with the warlord Khalifa Haftar, represented in the so-called "General Command in Cyrenaica," to ensure the success of the military institution.

The government shall have a lifespan of two additional years commencing from the date of the agreement or until elections are held, provided that the countries of Turkey, Egypt, the UAE, and Qatar oversee the agreement between the legislative and executive authorities.

It may be worth noting that the initiative came just hours after Dbeibah met with several MPs in Tripoli.
