Libya: Protesters in Tripoli demand army chief Haftar become president

Hundreds of protesters gathered in Tripoli on Sunday evening to demand that Field Marshall Khalifa Haftar become president of a unified Libya, after the army chief announced the collapse of the UN-backed Libyan Political Agreement (LPA). In a televised address, Haftar declared that the 'Tobruk government' in the eastern part of the country deemed the LPA with the UN-backed Government of National... Еще Accord (GNA) to be obsolete. Haftar added that the loyalty of the Libyan National Army (LNA) in a unified Libya would depend on the will of the people, and that the Libyan people are their own «guardian and the master of its land». Footage from GNA-controlled Tripoli shows protesters in open dissent, holding pictures of Haftar and calling for the overthrow of the GNA. Haftar is considered to be a significant player in any future political settlement in Libya.
