In addition, the Dabaiba government will not accept the handover of power except to an elected party, meaning that in the event that elections are not held on time, the government will continue to perform its duties, and this statement emanated from the designated Prime Minister of the Government of National Unity, Ramadan Abu Jinnah, as a result of a widespread idea that has occupied space in all political meetings, and in his statement he stressed that in case the elections are postponed, it is possible that the Dabaiba government will be overthrown and a new government will be appointed, and a lot of information ponts to the fact that Fathi Basha Agha is the designated candidate to succeed Dabaiba in coordination with Haftar in eastern Libya.
