The primary election result of the Libyan Youth Parliament was announced on Sunday in a ceremony attended by Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibah.
In his speech on the occasion, Dbeibah emphasized the need to proceed with the youth elections and called on the media to raise awareness in this area as these elections are relatively new in Libya.

He expressed his appreciation to those who supervised the elections and hoped it would reach all Libyans across the country.
