The media bureau of the National Rescue Government headed by Khalifa Al-Ghweil announced that it will hand over the authority to the General National Congress (GNC), on Thursday.
The government stated that the decision came after hours of emergency meetings in its headquarters in Tripoli.
This came after the Government of National Accord (GNA) was able to enter Tripoli by sea after Al-Ghweil closed the air space and threatened to arrest the GNA if entered Tripoli.
The government of national rescue demanded giving the opportunity for good rebels, notables and civil society organizations to find the right solution that saves blood and find a solution for the current crisis.
It declared that it doesn’t recognize the Presidential Council (PC), stating that it will use peaceful and lawful channels of objection rather than violence.
The government stated that it doesn’t cling to power and is totally loyal to the revolution of 17th February.
