Libyan GNA to move to Tripoli without a vote of confidence from the HoR
Before the GNA begins its term it must receive a vote of confidence from Tobruk's internationally recognized House of Representatives (HOR). Even though it has not received the vote, the GNA is intending to move to Tripoli and begin operations there.
|The HoR met several times to have a vote on the GNA. Each time there was either no quorum or the session was disrupted with no votes. In response, the UN appears to be planning to avoid a vote in the HoR. The first time the UN did this resulted in the present Skhirat agreement.|
Members of the Libyan Political Dialogue concluded today the first day of deliberations in the Tunisian capital with a reaffirmation of their commitment to uphold the Libyan Political Agreement signed in Skhirat on 17 December 2015 as the only and legitimate framework for bringing an end to the political crisis and military conflict in Libya.
While the members of the Political Dialogue stress that granting a vote of confidence to the Government of National Accord is an inherent competence of the House of Representatives, and with all due respect to opinions of Parliament members about the Government of National Accord, they valued the statement of 23 February by the majority of members of the House of Representatives in which they expressed approval of the formation of the Government of National Accord.In spite of all this verbal maneuvering the fact is that the GNA's term has not yet begun. Nevertheless, the next sections say that the Presidency Council of the GNA should take whatever steps are necessary to have the GNA start working out of Tripoli.Members of the Political Dialogue called on the House of Representatives concerning the importance of complete(sic) these steps and to continue upholding its responsibilities with respect to the implementation of all relevant provisions of the Libyan Political Agreement.
All public bodies, including official financial institutions, should put in place the necessary arrangements for an immediate and orderly and peaceful handover of power in accordance with the provisions of the Libyan Political Agreement.
