In Libya, it was announced that the government headed by Abdullah es-Seni, which was not recognized by the international community, had resigned.

The pro-Khalifa Hafter, the leader of the armed forces in eastern Libya, submitted his resignation to Akile Salih, the Speaker of the House of Representatives (TM) in Tobruk, amid 3 days of protests against the worsening living conditions.

In a statement on the council’s website, it was announced that the government, headed by Abdullah es-Seni, which is not recognized by the international community, has submitted its resignation to TM President Saleh.


The statement said the resignation would be submitted to Parliament for consideration, but no date was given.

The decision to resign was announced during an emergency meeting of Akile Saleh with the government to discuss the reasons for the protests, which began due to worsening living conditions in the Hafter-controlled city of Merc.

According to information cited by the Libyan Al-Ahrar channel, the Libyan crime watchdog, 1 person was killed and 1 person was injured when Hafter militiamen opened fire on demonstrators in the city of Merc.

“February” Channel announced last night that 5 people were injured as a result of shooting at demonstrators who took to the streets in the cities of Benghazi, Merc and Beyda.
