Government spokesman, Muhammad Hammouda, said that all ministers are continuing to perform their duties, and there is no truth to rumors that some ministers have resigned while they are normally present in their headquarters.
Hamouda wrote, on his Facebook page: “There is a wide campaign of fake and misleading news, including the spread of some forged documents on the communication sites regarding the resignation of some ministers, as they are present in their headquarters naturally.”
Earlier, the Prime Minister of the Government of National Unity, Abdel Hamid Dabaiba, announced that his government would remain in power until the presidential and parliamentary elections.
He added, “We will not allow new transitional stages or a parallel authority, and we will not retreat in the government until the elections.”
He stressed that his government “will continue its work until it is handed over to an elected authority.”
After years of battles and power struggles between two authorities in the east and west of the country, a unified government was formed in February of last year, as part of a political process sponsored by the United Nations in order to get Libya out of the chaos that followed the fall of Muammar Gaddafi’s regime in 2011.
The government’s task was set in leading the transitional period to presidential and legislative elections that were initially scheduled for December 24, before they could not be held due to security, judicial and political obstacles.
