Ahmed Maiteeq: I will be happy to serve the Libyan people if they choose me as the head of the next national unity government

Deputy Chairman of the Presidency Council of the Government of National Accord, Ahmed Maiteeq, pledged to achieve economic recovery and a fair distribution of wealth if he is chosen as the head of the national unity government, which is expected to be formed during the political dialogue.

I will be happy to serve the Libyan people if they choose me as the head of the next national unity government, Maiteeq said on Thursday in an interview with the Italian newspaper “Corriere della Sera”.

He added, “If this happens, I will first and foremost commit to achieving economic recovery, and working with the Central Bank to solve the liquidity crisis and equitable distribution of energy resources’ revenues.”

Regarding accusations of treason following negotiations with the commander of the Libyan National Army Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, that resulted afterwards in the resumption of oil production, and whether he considered the latter a partner in the dialogue, Ahmed Maitiq said: “I say it frankly: Isolation is useless, it only creates opportunities for war”.

“If part of the Libyans considers Haftar their representative, then it is legitimate to include him in the political process,” he stated.
