Tripoli, 12 January 2014:
It appears that the General National Congress is not prepared to hold a vote of confidence . . .[restrict]in prime minister Ali Zeidan, unless it has already agreed on someone to replace him.
The GNC today suspended its sitting, to allow independent members and political blocs more time to discuss the no-confidence vote.
“No solutions have been reached yet” independent congressman, Ali Refai Zubi, told the Libya Herald.” Zubi emphasised what appears to be the widely-held view that if a no-confidence voted succeeded, a new premier should already have been agreed.
“It is important to replace Zeidan at the same time as a vote of no-confidence, to ensure that the country is not put into a political vacuum,” he said, adding that the GNC had scheduled sittings on Tuesday and Wednesday to make up for the loss of today’s proceedings.
