The Presidency of the University of Tripoli announced on Facebook on Saturday the resumption of study in all its faculties, starting Sunday, November 19.

The Head of the Faculty Syndicate at the University of Tripoli, Osama Al-Azraq, explained that the resumption of study across Libya came based on the General Syndicate’s agreement with the Internal Security Apparatus on November 16.

Al-Azraq pledged to compensate the students for the strike period by providing additional lectures to complete the semester, indicating that they would follow up on their demands via the judiciary system. 

Classes were suspended for the current academic year in more than 50 educational institutions, including universities, higher institutes, and colleges, after the teaching staff organized a strike on September 05, demanding salaries, vacations, and studying abroad rights.

The demands of the teaching staff revolved around the implementation of Universities Law No. 4 of 2020 regarding increasing the salaries of university professors, sending teaching assistants and master’s degree holders abroad, granting sabbatical leave to professors and teaching assistants, attending practical conferences abroad, and paying the delayed financial dues of university professors.
