On 19 August, reports emerged that the Government of National Unity (GNU) Prime Minister, Abdul Hameed Dabaiba, had reconstituted the Misratan Joint Force and other armed groups into a coalition named ‘Brigade Libya’. Brigade Libya has reportedly been tasked with securing the Prime Minister’s office. Unconfirmed rumours claim that the GNU provided Brigade Libya with 180 million LYD. On the same day, Brigade Libya issued a statement in Misrata calling for the abolition of the House of Representatives (HoR) and the High State Council (HSC) and for the formation of a Constituent Assembly.
