Tripoli, 7 February 2014:
Despite the political crisis over Congress’ term of office with political groups claiming that it . . .[restrict]ends today and demanding a new Congress be elected, the President of Congress, Nuri Abu Sahmain, has flown to Tunis. He was invited to attend and address a special ceremony at the National Assembly attended by a number of other Middle East and regional heads of parliament to inaugurate the new Tunisian constitution which was overwhelmingly approved a week and a half ago.
The departure has prompted adverse reactions with accusations on social media site accusing him of running away from the political crisis centred on Congress.
Abu Sahmain caused public anger last November when he flew to Kuwait for the 3rd Africa-Arab Summit at a time of political instability following the
kidnapping of the prime minister and the role in it of the Libyan Revolutionaries Operations Room, which he had created and which is supposed to be answerable to him. [/restrict]
