The Foreign Minister of the government designated by the House of Representatives (HoR), Hafed Gaddur, has resigned, citing the incompetence of the Prime Minister, Osama Hammad.
Gaddur said in a resignation letter sent to the Speaker of the HoR, Aqila Saleh, that there was a heavily-funded agenda of certain foreign countries that had been hindering the formation of a unified Libyan government by continuing to give weapons and money to destabilize Libya.
Gaddur said division and fragmentation had led to the weakening of the national project in Libya, and opened the door for foreign interventions, adding that the current HoR-designated PM Hammad adopted a moody approach of nepotism and favoritism.
"Hammad issued orders without getting the necessary mandate for them, referring to a number of decisions he made and agreements he signed with foreign parties without consulting with the Foreign Ministry, which previously remarked that such agreements had been negative to the state of Libya." Gaddur said.
He indicated that he would continue to support any national project for real reconciliation and coexistence across Libya, in addition to supporting leading the country to free and fair elections whose results could be accepted by all parties.
