The newly elected Prime Minister of the unified executive authority, Abdul-Hamid Dbeibah, said the members of the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF) chose peaceful solutions over war, referring to the election of his list in Geneva on Friday.

In a televised statement Saturday, Dbeibah said the LPDF election is the victory of national unity, reconciliation and democracy, adding that he would fulfill his promises toward holding general elections on December 24, 2021.

Dbeibah also said the LPDF roadmap will pave the way to end conflicts and reach elections, thus ending transitional phases in Libya, vowing to work with all parties regardless of their ideologies, background or regional locations.

"We will abide by our commitments to agreements with foreign countries and cooperate more with neighboring countries in our national interest. We urge all states to be partners in achieving stability in Libya."  He indicated.

LPDF members elected Friday in Geneva Mohammed Menfi as Head of the new Presidential Council, with Mossa Al-Koni and Abdullah Al-Lafi as members and Abdul-Hamid Dbeibah as a Prime Minister.

Meanwhile, the LPDF roadmap, issued in Tunisia last December, says the new Prime Minister will have to form his cabinet and receive a vote of confidence from the House of Representatives in 21 days, if not, the LPDF will vote on approving the interim unity government.
