Bloomberg: Al-Sarraj to resign from Libyan GNA

Bloomberg has revealed that Libyan Prime Minister Fayez Al-Sarraj intends to announce his resignation soon, but he will remain in his position temporarily until the completion of negotiations that will take place in Geneva next month, according to officials familiar with the matter.

Bloomberg noted that, after the GNA forces managed to repel the Libyan National Army’s attack on Tripoli last June, the capital slid into an internal political struggle, and Al-Sarraj also faced pressure from a protest movement against corruption and poor services.

It also cited two officials with knowledge of the secret talks on the resignation decision, and asked not to be identified, that Al-Sarraj will relieve some of the pressure on himself with this decision while paving the way for his exit after the Geneva talks.

Bloomberg cited its sources indicating that Al-Sarraj had discussed his resignation plans with partners at the local and international levels, noting that the Head of the Presidential Council of the Government of National Accord will announce this decision officially by the end of this week.
