On 5 February 2021, Abdul Hamid al-Dabaiba was designated as Prime Minister of the country during the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF) when he ran on a joint ticket with Mohamed al-Menfi as President and Musa al-Koni and Abdallah al-Lafi as Vice Presidents.[2]


Abdul Hamid al-Dabaiba was born in 1959 in the Western city of Misrata. He lived in Canada while studying and graduating with a master's degree in engineering at the University of Toronto.[3] He returned to Misrata during a construction boom, gaining the trust of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, who appointed him as head of the Libyan Investment and Development Company (LIDCO), the state-owned construction firm.[4]

In an address to the nation, Libyan Prime Minister Abdel Hamid Dbeibah said that Abu Agila Masud, the Libyan national accused of being involved in the Lockerbie bombing, is a suspect in terrorist activities for killing more than 270 innocent people in one operation.[6]
Dbeibah added: "After being classified as a terrorist and an arrest warrant issued against him, it was our duty to extradite him to clear our country of terrorism."[7]
