Government of National Unity Prime Minister Abdulhamid Dabaiba visited the Italian military field hospital in the city of Misrata on Wednesday, according Italy's Agenzia Nova, quoting unnamed Libyan sources.
“The sudden visit comes after rumors spread within months about the desire of the Libyan authorities to close or transfer the hospital," where about 300 Italian soldiers and doctors are present, the report added.
During his visit to Misrata on Tuesday, Dabaiba stressed that "there is no other path for Libyans than to hold parliamentary and presidential elections."
Dabaiba added that the parliamentary elections are “easy and the laws are in place.”
He continued: “We will reach the elections no matter how hard the plotters close the road and we will go back to the people, so they can choose who will serve them.”
