The Xinhua reported, Libyan Prime Minister Abdul-Hamid Dbeibah said Saturday that he will not allow another war to erupt in the country, pledging to put an end to the state of division in Libya.

“We will not allow the division to continue for any reason. There will be no more war,” Dbeibah told his supporters who were protesting here against the Libyan House of Representatives (parliament).

“We will continue the development and stability. All the Libyans want to live in peace, and we have the means to enable us to live in dignity, freedom and peace,” he said, stressing his government’s keenness for holding successful elections later this year.

Dbeibah’s Government of National Unity (GNU) was selected by the United Nations-sponsored Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF) in February, ending years of political division in the country.

On Sept. 8, the parliament held a session to question Dbeibah over financial and administrative violations, which Dbeibah denied as the GNU’s budget was not approved by the parliament.

On Tuesday, the parliament announced withdrawal of confidence from the GNU but kept it as a caretaker government, while Dbeibah called on his supporters to protest against the parliament.

Libya is expected to hold general elections in December as approved by the LPDF.
