Libya's House of Representatives called on the Attorney General to investigate Abdulhamid Dabaiba's government on charges of "impersonation" and "the crime of communicating with the Zionist entity", after news of Foreign Minister Najla Mangoush meeting with her Israeli counterpart.
This came in a statement issued following a meeting held at its headquarters in Benghazi on Monday.
The statement added that "the House of Representatives was assured of the involvement of the outgoing government in meetings and communication with the Zionist entity, with the aim of normalization with the occupying entity, which is criminalized by laws and legislation in our country, in exchange for promises to continue in power and obstruct the holding of elections as it did in 2021."
It also stressed that "the legitimate Libyan government is the one mandated by the House of Representatives," calling on "all regulatory, military, security and financial institutions and agencies to cooperate with it and not to implement the instructions from the Dabaiba government".
The statement called on "all countries" to deal with the government mandated by the House of Representatives and for the Libyan people to insist on the formation of a new government as soon as possible.
The House of Representatives also included a recommendation for the '6+6 Joint Committee to Prepare Electoral Laws' to disalow any "candidate for elections if they have been proven to be involved in communications with the Zionist entity".
