The head of Libya's parliament-appointed government, Osama Hammad, discussed the needs of the municipalities, during a meeting with a number of officials, stressing the need to break up centralization and activate local administrations for each municipality.
The meeting was attended by Deputy Prime Minister Ali Al-Qatrani, the Minister of Local Government Sami Al-Dhawi, the Undersecretary General of the Ministry of Local Government, and the Chairman of the Executive Council of Benghazi Municipality.
Hammad stressed that "the government will support all municipalities with the capabilities they need to provide the necessary and basic services to citizens," calling on "mayors to put the basic requirements of the citizen at the highest priority of their work and to provide the material and human resources to perform their work to the fullest."
Hammad stressed, "the need to break up the abhorrent centralization that obstructs development plans and to move towards an optimal application of the foundations of local administration, to speed up the decision-making process necessary to provide the best and fastest services to citizens."
He also referred to “the formation of a special committee in the health sector, concerned with oncology patients, based on Ali Al-Qatrani’s proposal to work to end the suffering of oncology patients in all Libyan regions and cities.”
Osama Hammad was assigned by parliament to take over duties as the head of the Government of National Stability after the suspension of Fathi Bashagha.
