Libya’s Prime Minister Fayez al-Sarraj plans to announce his resignation soon.
CDE News Agency is reliably informed that al-Sarraj had confirmed his intentions to step down to several international players. Initially the resignation was planned for March 2021, linked to elections in the country.
Bloomberg reports that al-Sarraj will stay on in a caretaker capacity through negotiations for a new government in Geneva next month, according to officials familiar with his thinking.
Bloomberg said that by announcing his resignation, he would relieve some of the pressure on himself while setting the stage for his exit after the Geneva talks, two officials said on condition of anonymity to discuss confidential conversations. The rival sides will be asked to agree on a new presidential council structure that unifies the country’s duelling administrations and schedule elections.
