UN-sponsored Libyan Government of National Accord meets in Tunis
Faiez Serraj held a meeting of senior officials of the Government of National Accord (GNA) in Tunis. Officially, it was the first, although there have apparently already been three previous meetings.
|Those at the meeting included Ali Al-Gutruni, Musa Al-Koni, Ahmed Maetig, Fathi Al-Mijabri, Abdulsalam Kajman, Omar Al-Aswad and Ahmed Hamza. The participants discussed ways in which the GNA could progress, internal work processes, and the priorities for the coming days. The GNA has to present its program and names of the government members to the present internationally-recognized government, the House of Representatives (HoR), within 30 days of the signing of the Libyan Political Agreement (LPA). The HoR must give a vote of confidence in the GNA before its term begins. The LPA was signed on December 17 in Skhirat, Morocco so there are less than three weeks left. Martin Kobler, the Special Representative for the Secretary General (SRSG) for Libya, does not bother to mention the meeting on the UNSMIL website. The site does not bother to mention the fact that the HoR has already met twice and failed to vote on the LPA because there was no quorum even though the UN claims that a majority of the HoR support the LPA. At the last meeting 25 of 188 members of the HoR attended.|
In December, the two governments signed an initial UN-brokered agreement to form a unity government with the aim of bringing back peace in the country.No such thing happened. How an organization such as DW can continue printing outright falsehoods, I simply cannot fathom. Authors of their reports cannot have even the most basic knowledge of what is happening in Libya.
