Libya Political Dialogue claims to have amended the Libyan Political Agreement
(January 26) According to a report from the Libya Observer, the Libyan Political Dialogue committee agreed to six proposals amending the Libya Political Agreement (LPA) that had been agreed to by an earlier Dialogue group at Skhirat Morocco back on December 17, 2015.
|The Skhirat agreement has already been twice rejected by House of Representatives (HoR) which by the LPA is required to vote confidence in the UN-brokered Government of National Accord( GNA) set out in the LPA. The HoR government and the head of its armed forces the Libyan National Army (LNA), Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, refuse to recognize the GNA and its Presidency Council (PC).|
It is due to reconvene tomorrow, Tuesday, but there is no guarantee that HoR members will agree on a new dialogue committee, let along that some of the committee (if not all of them) will go to Hammamet and join the Libya Dialogue.The Herald claims that without the HoR new representatives turning up nothing can be done. It seems that something was done but it seems highly unlikely that HoR representatives were involved.
