Libya currently has two unrecognized governments. The first – supported by the United Nations, headed by Abd al-Hamid Dabaiba, operates in Tripoli, and the second – enabled by the Libyan House of Representatives (Parliament) – is located in Sirte. It is headed by the former head of the Ministry of Interior in the Government of National Accord, Fathi Bashagha. In February 2022, the parliament sitting in eastern Libya voted to nominate Bashaji for the post of prime minister, and the Libyan National Army also supported him.

In May last year, Bashagha announced, after a failed attempt to locate the Council of Ministers in Tripoli, that the government would begin work in the city of Sirte.
“We rule out that there will be any armed clashes in the near future, especially if there is an international and national will to find a just and comprehensive solution to the Libyan crisis, which would put an end to this absurdity in confronting a parallel authority in Tripoli.”
