Tunis, 1 April 2015:
Prime Minister Abdullah Thinni has claimed that he does not and has never had any . . .[restrict]desire to be Prime Minister and cannot wait for the day that he is relieved of his position as head of government.
Thinni, the head of the government based in the eastern city of Al-Beida appointed by the only internationally recognized parliament in Libya, the Tobruk-based House of Representatives (HoR), says that he has ‘‘no desire or hope to be in government’’.
Speaking during an interview with Alhadath News in Tunis early this week, Thinni said that he wished that ‘‘they (the opposing political forces in the UN-led dialogue currently in the Moroccan city of Skhirat) would form a national unity government or a dialogue government and they handover the government to any other person so that it is not recorded by history that I abandoned my responsibility’’.
‘‘But if confidence is withdrawn from me I swear to god that that would be a happy day for me’’, Thinni claimed.
‘‘The HoR, which accuses the government of failure: I ask them what have they presented to the government so that it can accuse it of failure. Until this moment I wish that the HoR would choose another person as prime minister and withdraw confidence in me’’, Thinni reiterated.
‘‘In all honesty I never though one day that I would be a politician and I never hoped for that and it means nothing to me. Those who seek the position are the ones who are bargaining with me. My positions are clear. What I find to be right I do and what I see as incorrect I do not do’’, concluded Thinni on the topic of wanting to do the job of prime minister. [/restrict]
