Tripoli, 20 May 2015:
In a surprise move two leading members of the Muslim Brotherhood-dominated Justice and Construction party have . . .[restrict]announced their support for the UNSMIL-led dialogue and moreover, one of them has warned the General National Congress not to obstruct the peace process.
Mohamed Sawan, the party leader, has apparently used his Facebook page to praise the Dialogue and express his approval of all Libyans who are working for peace. He said that the GNC should cooperate with UNSMIL in its quest to bring Libya’s rival factions together.
His fellow party member Abdulrazaq Al-Aradi has also called for peace and Tweeted his appreciation for Misrata’s efforts. This may be a reference to Misrata’s call yesterday for reconciliation and an end to fighting.
Aradi’s message also suggested that members of the GNC might shortly be going to Tobruk to meet members of the House of Representatives.
It was not possible to contact either politicians to confirm the content of these postings.
The Justice and Construction Party, heavily defeated in last June’s general election has been the driving force behind the revival of the dissolved GNC, which has sought the supply a political legitimacy to the Libya Dawn movement and its militias.
