Ahmed Mitig: The GNA will take over a number of ministries in Tripoli Monday, regardless of HoR’s vote

7

Ahmed Mitig, the Deputy Prime Minister of the Presidential Council of the UN-backed GNA said the government is going to take over work in the ministries of social affairs, youth and sport, and housing on Monday, regardless of whether or not Tobruk-based HoR votes to approve the new government.

Such a vote is required by the UN-backed deal. It has been repeatedly delayed, but the parliament is expected to convene on Monday amid intense Western pressure for Libyans to rally round the GNA and allow it to start work.

Mitig was speaking at a press conference with UN delegate to Libya, Martin Kobler, who announced that the United Nations would now be basing its operations out of Tripoli rather than Tunis.

“I’m not visiting Tripoli any more, I’m working out of Tripoli,” he said. “The United Nations will be in Tripoli five days a week.”
