Dilemma faces UN and Government of National Accord in Libya
The United Nations and the UN-brokered Government of National Accord (GNA) face a dilemma in Libya, after the internationally-recognized House of Representatives (HoR) failed to pass a vote of confidence in the GNA.
|The HoR rejected both the GNA and the Libya Political Agreement (LPA). It demanded that there be a smaller cabinet for the GNA and also that section 8 of the LPA be deleted. The Presidency Council of the GNA is to send a new smaller cabinet list back to the HoR for a vote within 10 days. The vote rejecting the GNA was 89 of the 104 members present. The vote in favor of the LPA but with section 8 deleted was 97 of 104.|
Article (8) All powers of the senior military, civil and security posts stipulated in the Libyan legislations and laws in force shall be transferred to the Presidency Council of the Council of Ministers immediately upon signing this Agreement. .
..Army commander of Libya’s Tobruk-based parliament General Khalifa Haftar arrived to Cairo, in an unscheduled visit, as the head of the Libyan delegation.
