Tripoli, 2 December.
Justice and Construction party leader Mohamed Sawan has condemned the new slimmed-down Tripoli cabinet of Khalifa Ghwell . . .[restrict]as “meaningless” and accused GNC president Nuri Abu Sahmain of breaching GNC voting rules.
He protested that the portfolios in the new ‘Government of National Salvation’ had been allocated at an unannounced meeting of the GNC which anyway had not had enough members present to permit a vote. Sawan took to his social media page today to assert that Abu Sahmain had violated GNC rules by collecting a few loyal congressmen and deciding whatever he wanted.
Sawan also said that the reshuffle was meaningless because the majority of Libyans was anticipating the completion of UN-brokered Political Accord.
He added that Libya’s neighbours and the rest of the international community would therefore consider the vote and the new Ghwell administration to be “worthless”.
Sawan and his party, which is the political arm of the Libyan Muslim Brotherhood, have long backed the UN Dialogue. They have thus been in dispute with Abu Sahmain who rejects the Political Accord and has resisted having the remnants of the GNC taking a view. [/restrict]
