Benghazi, 1 March 2017:
The spokesman for the Thinni administration in Beida, Abdul Hakim Matouq, has resigned.
Confirming his departure to the Libya Herald, he would not give reasons for it. However, it is thought that there were issues with other members of the administration. Yesterday, he expressed his frustration in a TV interview at the difficulties facing the interim government which was no longer recognised internationally and which had just four embassies worldwide acknowledging its authority.
Accepting the resignation, the Beida government thanked him, expressing its “deep gratitude” for his four months at the job.
He was appointed last October following the resignation of Hatem Al-Oraibi who quit saying he could not do the job and that of the head of the Beida’s government’s Radio and TV Corporation at the same time.
