Fathi Bashagha (born 20 August 1962) is a Libyan politician and former military pilot who serves as the Minister of Interior of the internationally recognised Government of National Accord (GNA) since 7 October 2018. In his position he has been trying to create a professional national police for Libya and reorganise some of the militia groups that the GNA has relied on. Originally from Misrata and being a former fighter pilot, he was elected in 2014 to the House of Representatives. But it is no longer recognised internationally and Bashagha has been boycotting it since the Second Libyan Civil War began.
