Prime Minister of Libya’s National Unity Government Abdel Hamid Dabaiba defended his government’s policies and the performance of his ministries, stressing his keenness to respect the Parliament, which he considers the supreme authority in the country.
This came in a government accountability session, which was held Wednesday, at the House of Representatives in Tobruk, and was attended by the Prime Minister and some of his ministers, during which he justified the government’s reliance on expenditures of the emergency clause by not adopting the budget by the Parliament, after its Finance Committee confirmed the government’s spending of more than 46 billion dinars.
Dabaiba detailed his government’s expenses from the controversial emergency aspect, as he revealed the allocation of 700 million to the Ministry of the Interior, and 1.2 billion to the Ministry of Health, of which only 100 million were spent, according to the assurances of the Minister of Health.
Dabaiba added that his government transferred 50 million to the five accredited medical centers in Libya, which have independent financial control, and 150 million to the Ministry of Communications, in addition to 250 million to the Ministry of Local Government, and 100 million to various ministries
Also, 500 million was allocated to support the Social Solidarity Fund, where the sums were directed to raise basic pension salaries, which are urgent expenses.
This is in the light of the failure to adopt the budget that the government needs to rebuild cities and establish stalled infrastructure projects, justifying the increase in the value of the proposed budget with the change in the exchange rate with the increase in debts owed by the previous government by about 80 billion.
