The President of Tobruk Parliament, Aqilah Saleh, confirmed that approving the UN-backed Presidential Council’s new cabinet outside the parliament will not be legitimate.

He told Al-Bayda based Libyan News Agency Tuesday that the MPs should work from inside the parliament, saying Tobruk city is safe and there is nothing that prevents the MPs from attending the sessions.

“All disputes among the parliament members must be solved democratically and the parliament sessions must be held on time, which would reflex the MPs’ commitment toward their country.” Aqilah added.

Tobruk parliament postponed this week’s session for not reaching quorum, which has happened a little too much over the last period.
