Al-Makhzoum: PC to choose the army leader soon


The Deputy Chief of the State Council, Saleh Al-Makhzoum, announced that the Presidential Council (PC) will hire soon the true person to lead the Libyan army in consensus with the House of Representatives (HoR) and the State Council.

Al-Makhzoum added that the true guarantees for the Political Agreement are what is happening now, as the State Council and the PC are on ground in addition to the near activation of the Government of National Accord (GNA) from Tripoli.

He added that the State Council is in a constant communication with the members of the General National Congress (GNC), who haven’t joined the State Council yet. He stated that they don’t oppose the agreement, but demand guarantees on legislative balance and maintaining goals of revolution.

He said that he communicates with the chief of the GNC, Nuri Abusahmain, and the Grand Mufti, Al-Sadiq Al-Gheriani, and was careful to listen to his instructions, adding that the State Council will defend its members, and the mufti, and would ask the European Union to refrain from the imposition of sanctions.
