Tripoli, 20 May 2013:
Not for the first time, Prime Minister Ali Zeidan, called upon the Libyan public to stand . . .[restrict]behind him and his government.
Speaking at yesterday evening’s press conference, Zeidan chided Libyans who did not turn up to work and who therefore “let the nation down”.
Zeidan rebuked Libyans who did not turn up to work yet were quick to strike and engage in civil disobedience activities in demand of better pay and conditions.
The Prime Minister insisted that the government too had a duty to the rest of the nation and that it wanted a return for the wages it was disbursing. Citizens were the “army” of the government and that the government could not lead without its soldiers, he insisted.
