44 of Libya’s Parliament members in Tobruk call for pullout from UN-brokered political agreement
44 members of the Libyan House of Representatives (HoR) in Tobruk rejected in a statement on Sunday the UN-brokerd Political Agreement signed in Morocco’s Skhirat resort in December 2015.
The members added in the statement that all the political entities created by the Political Agreement are illegitimate.
“We call on the HoR to officially announce the withdrawal from the Libyan Political Agreement of Skhirat.” The members explained.
They also urged the HoR to voice support for the forces of Khalifa Haftar in their “fight against terrorism in Tripoli in order to pave the way for a civilian state cherished by all Libyans.” The HoR members added.
The members slammed the Presidential Council for its failure and inaction toward the application of the Political Agreement’s rules in Libya since taking power, adding that it has been operating under the control of militias which “are in full command of Tripoli and the government in there.”
