Thursday marked the one-year anniversary for Libya's Government of National Accord. Yet Prime Minister Fayez Al Sarraj, who rose to the political scene with the backing of the UN, has failed to realize any significant achievements. And in recent months, he seems to have been getting less support from local and international players in the country's six-year crisis.
One Year ago, Sarraj arrived with hopes of unifying Libya, forming a unity government and ending the crisis. He has held intensive meetings with Libyan factions and regional powers, but they have led nowhere.
Sarraj has been given the political protocol to represent Libya. He gave an address at the Arab Summit this week and met regional powers. But analysts said his support is shrinking in favor of his rival, Marshal Khalifa Haftar, who controls the Libyan National Army. CGTN’s Adel EL Mahrouky has the report.
