UN envoy to Libya accused of blocking vote in HoR on the Government of National Accord
News releases out of Libya are becoming quite bizarre and disturbing. A recent article in the Libya Observer, a news source that usually favors the General National Congress (GNC) based in Tripoli is a case in point.
|The GNC government is a rival to the internationally-recognized government, the House of Representatives (HoR), based in the east of Libya in Tobruk. The Libya Observer claims Martin Kobler, the head of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL), is blocking the HoR from voting on the UN-brokered Government of National Accord(GNA)|
"A close colleague informed me from Tunisia that Kobler had ordered them to meet only on January 25. If this was confirmed and we couldn't meet until January 25, then it would be a catastrophe."
"We urged them for several times to come to Tobruk and meet to discuss and vote on Skhirat agreement, but they didn't. We come on Mondays and Tuesdays for the parliament meeting, but we fail to reach the needed quorum because of them."
