The Sabha Municipal Council on Thursday said that the city welcomed Libya’s UN-backed Presidential Council. The Sabha Municipal Council’s statement appealed to the Council of Parliament and the National Congress to join the Presidential Council.
The Presidential Council, or "The Government of National Accord" (GNA), was brought about through a power-sharing agreement, brokered by the UN, that was signed in December. Having arrived in Tripoli by boat on Wednesday, the Presidential Council intend to start their administrative duties from the city's naval base.
Many international powers have acknowledged the Presidential Council as Libya's only legitimate government. However, the council is already facing opposition. Fighting reportedly broke out across Tripoli the day before, in protest at the council’s arrival.
