Tobruk, 13 October 2015:
The House of Representatives has . . .[restrict]postponed until next Monday a vote on the UNSMIL National Accord deal and the new government it proposes.
At a stormy two-hour session today, opinion among the more than 130 members present appeared to be split three days. There were some, seemingly a minority, who were for an outright rejection of the whole package, complemented by another group of representatives who were for accepting entirely.
In between there were those who had differences about the composition of the proposed Presidential Council, to consist of a prime minister, Fayez Sarraj, three deputies and two senior ministers. There was reportedly no real objection to the last-minute addition of a third deputy premier but there were problems with the selection of Ahmed Maetig, the short-lived former prime minister chosen by the old GNC, whose appointment was ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court in June 2014.
There was no discussion about the State Council nor state security – how the Accord was going to be make to work with the presence of recalcitrant militias within areas controlled by Libya Dawn.
The parliamentary session opened at 2 pm today. [/restrict]
