The speaker of the East Libyan House of Representatives, beacon of Prime Minister Fathi Bashagha's political alliance, hopes to travel to Turkey soon and is in talks with the chairman of the High Council of State, who changed political colours in February.
The Military Investment Authority, which is the main financial body behind the regime of General Khalifa Haftar in eastern Libya, is run by figures drawn from Libyan National Army. It has charge of infrastructure projects and troop supplies but is also involved in smuggling.
After having long been an unconditional supporter of Khalifa Haftar, the Egyptian president is now ready to accept a median solution. He wants to avoid a direct confrontation with Turkey and devote his energy to other crises, particularly the one over Ethiopia's dam project on the River Nile.
The United Nations is seeking to take direct control of the disarmament of militias and the withdrawal of foreign forces away from the Libyan transitional government. Meanwhile the country's legislative and presidential elections scheduled for December 24 this year look more undermined than ever.
The chairman of Libya's sovereign wealth fund will remain in office in exchange for a payment of one billion dollars to the government. The money is a godsend for Prime Minister Abdelhamid Dabaiba, who may also be able to place his allies in the fund's subsidiaries.
