In light of the absence of the legislative body role in Libya paralysed by Aqeela Saleh and his group for years, public service agencies have been revolving around the orbit of corruption that has become rampant in all of its institutions.
And with the absence of the power, control, and prestige of the oversight bodies represented in the financial, administrative and accounting monitoring bodies, whose functions are in accordance with all the laws of the world, monitoring, inspection, follow-up and scrutiny of administrative and financial matters, budgets and expenditures – public authorities have found their opportunity to move freely, starting with the infringing assignments and recruitments that strained the salary clause to the general expenses that did not find a financial monitoring or censorship.
Presidential Council weakness
The writer and political analyst Ali Abuzaid said that the absence of accountability, the weakness of the legislative bodies, and the lack of activation of the judiciary – the most important reasons for the spread of corruption and empowered corrupted people in their positions
Abuzaid added, in a statement Arraed, that corruption has weakened the performance of the Presidential Council and reduced public consensus around it, and suspicions of the Presidential Council’s involvement in corruption are increasing by his insistence not to take measures that achieve transparency and reduce waste and corruption in spending budgets, especially emergency budgets.
In turn, the writer and political analyst Abdullah Al-Kabeer believes that corruption is a general state and a prevailing culture , and the oversight role should be through the House of Representatives, the Supreme Council of State, and regulatory agencies.
Al-Kabeer stressed, in a statement to Arraed, that corruption cannot be eliminated or reduced unless there are effective monitoring institutions, and this is not available now, because these institutions are not present or because they are weak or because they are also penetrated by corruption.
Corruption is rampant, and for his part, journalist Ibrahim Omar confirmed that the state of corruption that prevailed in state institutions was not new to the Libyans. Corruption was eating away the state’s institutions and institutions during the era of the previous regime, even if it seemed to us that it was a totalitarian or controlling system, at that time there was never real legislative or monitoring bodies.
Omar added, in a statement to Arraed, that the corruption that prevails in the public sectors of the state now, is a result of the absence of the state’s sovereign bodies such as the House of Representatives and financial, administrative and accounting monitoring , which is also powerless in the absence of the legislative apparatus that monitors and questions it and refers it to the judiciary in the event of default or dismiss its leaders who overstayed their existence time without being charged nor changed.
In any case, corruption will steal large amounts of money, and it will waste a long time, during which the state could have have saved a lot of money that can be used for important things or be saved for times of crisis.
