After its meeting held last November in Tunis, the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPFD) met last Monday in Geneva to elect the four members of a transitional presidential council (president, two vice-presidents and a prime minister). Organized under the auspices of the United Nations, this election, which brought together 75 Libyan delegates, made it possible to choose four people who will lead the country until the general elections held next December.
Libya has a new prime minister, Abdel Hamid Dbeibah, who will replace the head of the government of national unity Fayez al-Sarraj and will be responsible for leading a new government until the December 2021 elections are held. In order to be able to carry out his mission, the new Prime Minister Libya will have to reunite all the institutions of Libya, torn by major conflicts since the fall of the Gaddafi regime. This new government must also gain the confidence of Parliament.
Abdel Hamid Dbeibah is a businessman from Misrata. Former president of the Libyan Investment and Development Company (LIDCO) and a former member of the Gaddafi regime, he is, also, the founder of the Libya al-Mostakbal movement.
