Libya: Parliament to hold session on political crisis
The Libyan House of Representatives announces holding an official session tomorrow to discuss ways to overcome the political impasse in the country and the process of completing discussions on the constitutional track.
The Libyan House of Representatives announced that it will hold an official session on Monday, in the city of Tobruk, to discuss ways to overcome the political impasse in the country and to discuss the process of completing discussions on the constitutional track.
Media Adviser to the Presidency of the Libyan House of Representatives, Fathi al-Marimi, said that the Libyan House of Representatives will hold an official session tomorrow, on Monday, in the city of Tobruk, headed by the First Deputy, Fawzi Al-Nuiri.
He pointed out that the session will discuss the political blockage and ways to advance the political process, starting with the completion of the constitutional path, in addition to approving some draft laws that are ready for presentation.
On the other hand, Libyan sources confirmed a meeting between the Speaker of the Libyan House of Representatives, Aguila Saleh, and the Head of the Supreme Council of State, Khaled al-Mashri, in Egypt to discuss alternatives regarding the Libyan government instead of Abdul Hamid Dbeibeh and Fathi Bashagha.
Libyan parties to form third government
Libyan sources revealed that Libyan parties are jointly discussing the formation of a third government, which will lead until elections are held, provided that the governments of Dbeibeh and Bashagha, who have not yet received the headquarters, step down.
According to the sources, all options are open to getting out of the current blockage, although no final agreement has been reached on forming a new government so far, a likely scenario by many parties.
Libya is suffering from an escalating political crisis with a dispute between two governments. The first was headed by Fathi Bashagha, who was granted confidence by the Libyan House of Representatives, held in Tobruk, the far east of the country last March.
Second, comes the Libyan National Unity Government, which stems from political agreements sponsored by the United Nations, more than two years ago, headed by Abdul Hamid Dbeibeh, who refuses to hand over power except through presidential and parliamentary elections.
