Although no regular news media are yet reporting on what is happening, it appears that the planned meeting of the Libyan House of Representatives on April 18 may not take place.
|The meeting was planned for the House of Representatives (HoR) to provide a vote of confidence in the UN-brokered Government of National Accord (GNA) and also to amend the constitutional declaration of 2011. The meeting was to take place no later than April 18. Not too long ago the president of the HoR, together with two of the deputy presidents, met in Cairo to discuss the way forward. Afterwards, Emhemed Shouaib issued a statement clarifying what had been decided at the meeting.|
Third, the head of the UN Support MIssion in Libya was to call a meeting of the Libya Dialogue Committee to discuss recent events. In particular the claim that the State Council was officially constituted at the recent meeting in Tripoli. He, Salah and the other deputy all consider the meeting a violation of the LPA under article 64.The meeting also agreed to denounce the sanctions imposed by the EU on the president of the HoR, Ageela Salah.
“The House of Representatives remains central to the political process and to the implementation of the Libyan Political Agreement. There should be no doubt in anyone's mind about this,” stated Martin Kobler.
To @skynewsarabia: if HoR didn't vote on the GNA, I intend to convene the Libyan Political Dialogue to seek their advice on how to proceedThe tweet may be intended as a threat to force the HoR to vote on the GNA but it could be a threat that he carries out should the HoR not vote. He did this before when the HoR did not vote confidence in the GNA. He called together the Dialogue whom he claims gave him the green light for the GNA to be declared operational and move to Tripoli. He also referred to a letter by an alleged majority of the HoR in which they affirm their support for the GNA. There was never any formal vote on the issue.
Ahmed El-Gasir @amelgasir 46m46 minutes agoOf course one never knows what is going to happen in Libya. Perhaps, Kobler will be able to make some deal over the weekend and the HoR will meet and vote confidence in the GNA and approve an amendment to the constitutional declaration of 2011.Return of leading figures from #Gadhafi regime & holding meetings w/ #Haftar in #al_Marj#Libya #GNA @UNSMILibya
