Bloc of over 20 western-based boycotters agree to re-join parliament
By Sami Zaptia.
London, 31 March 2021:
A bloc of 20-odd boycotting members of parliament yesterday agreed to re-join the full proceedings of the internationally recognized House of Representatives (HoR).
The news was reported by Libyan state Alwataniya TV.
The bloc is made up of mainly Tripoli/western Libya-based members who had refrained from attending the reunified HoR sessions in Sirte and Tobruk that had respectively endorsed and sworn-in the new Aldabaiba-led Government of National Unity.
The news came after a meeting in Tripoli today between the Tripoli bloc and HoR First Deputy head Fawzi Al-Nuwairi.
The western-based parliamentarians had boycotted the eastern-based HoR in protest at its support for Khalifa Hafter for the war he had waged on Tripoli between April 2019 and June 2020.
