The Salvation Government has deplored the recent statement of Misrata Municipality, which favoured the unity government, announced by Leon on Thursday.

In a statement on Sunday, the SG rejected Leon's government, describing it as ‘Skhirat suspicious government.
The statement said Misrata Municipal Council has encroached on the rights of state authorities represented by the SG and GNC by requesting them to support Leon's proposed government.

"The municipality's role is only restricted to local matters related to the daily interests and services of citizens." The statement reads.

The statement further explained that the Leon's government contradicts all the national constants and principals, and establishes for international trusteeship over the homeland.

On Saturday, Misrata Municipality expressed support for the unity government and called on the GNC, SG and civil societies to back it.
