Libya’s interim government, which sits in the east of the country, has resigned. This is said in a statement
According to the document, head of parliament Aghila Saleh and head of the interim government Abdullah al-Thani held an urgent meeting on September 13. At the meeting, the politicians discussed opportunities to improve living conditions in the country. The fall in living standards has provoked protests that have been held over the past few days.
It is noted that the resignation will be considered by the House of Representatives.
Since 2011, the country has had a situation of dual power that began after the assassination of Muammar Gaddafi, who had ruled since 1969. In eastern Libya, there is a parliament supported by the Libyan National Army Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar. Another major political force in the country is the Government of National Accord (GNC) of Libya, which controls Tripoli and its western territory.
