The UN-brokered Government of National Accord (GNA) has managed to claim it is up and running and its Presidential Council has moved to a Tripoli naval base.
|The GNA has also established the main advisory body, the State Council, by holding a meeting of General National Congress (GNC) members who supported the GNA who had been listed by Salah Makhzoum as members of the Council and recognized as such by the UN and GNA Presidency Council. The meeting started out supposedly as a meeting of the GNC, which then voted to approve the GNA and amend the constitutional declaration of 2011 to include the GNA. It then dissolved itself and became the State Council and went on about its business. Critics claim the process was not legitimate.|
