The Address | Benghazi – Libya
TRIPOLI – Chairman of the Presidential Council of the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA), Fayez Al-Sarraj, has sacked his deputy, Ahmed Maiteeq, from the position of chairman of General Assembly of Libyan Post Telecommunications & Information Technology Company (LPTIC).
In a decree issued by GNA’s Presidential Council, of which The Address obtained a copy, Al-Sarraj appointed himself as the new chairman of LPTIC’s General Assembly.
Al-Sarraj appointed as members of LPTIC’s General Assembly, GNA’s Economy Minister Ali al-Isawi, its Finance Minister Faraj Boumtari, and a number of other ministers.
This is the latest episode in the political and administrative crisis inside GNA, which could lead to the collapse of the Tripoli-based government from within.
Maiteeq was one of three senior members of the Presidential Council who signed a joint statement accusing Al-Sarraj of making unilateral decisions, isolating his deputies and endangering GNA’s unity all in pursuit of “transnational alliances and interim international recognition”
Maiteeq and the others stated that they’re holding Al-Sarraj responsible for “the consequences of the impending collapse of state institutions.”
