Libyan GNA Presidency Council may be reduced from 9 back to 3
The Libya Observer reports that the UN-brokered Government of National Accord (GNA) may have a reduced number in the Presidency Council when it comes up at the next vote of confidence by the internationally recognized House or Representatives (HoR).
|The Libya Observer reports that during a meeting in Cairo, Ageela Saleh, president of the HoR and prime minister-designate of the Government of National Accord, agreed to amend the constitutional declaration to include the GNA and afterwards discuss approval of the GNA and Presidency Council. The Council now has nine ministers but would be reduced back to three as in the original declaration signed back on December 17. The Special Representative of the Secretary General (SRSG) Martin Kobler has often said the Libyan Political Agreement (LPA) cannot be amended but the number in the Presidency Council appears to be an exception.|
