The Libyan Prime Minister Abdul-Hamid Dbeibah said the Libyan elections law was devised in a way that suits certain individuals, calling on Libyans to stop this "mess" and decide their own fate, telling a crowd in Zuwara city on Saturday not to allow "them to mess with the fate of Libya".

Dbeibah said Libyans are aware of the woes of dictatorship and that the controversy of the elections law adds to the suffering of the people and serves the agenda of local and foreign parties, adding that the Libyan judiciary won't allow selective laws to pass as they violate freedom principles stipulated in the constitutional declaration.

"Political isolation and the current exclusion from taking part in state building aims at not only individuals but also the entire Libyan society. Libyan Amazigh people are part and parcel of the society and they have the right to call for a constitution that preserves all of their rights. Amazigh language should be taught at all schools and we're going to order Education and Higher Education Ministries to take care of this language by establishing university faculties to teach it." Dbeibah said.

He added that orders will be made to the Civil  Registry Authority to register Amazigh names if they don't violate Islamic Sharia, adding that the worst that could happen to people is to have their identity obliterated and be forced to adapt to another culture.
