HoR Speaker, Aqila Saleh, lashes out at Martin Kobler, calls him “Libya’s ruler”


Tobruk-based HoR criticized the U.N. delegate to Libya, saying the diplomat is acting like a “ruler.”

HoR speaker Aqila Saleh also accused the international community of trying to impose a unity government that goes against a U.N.-brokered agreement reached by Libya’s rival parties last December.

U.N. delegate, Martin Kobler, is “acting as a ruler and a judge, setting timeline, issuing decisions” and paving the way for the unity government to seize power in the capital of Tripoli before parliament can vote on it, Saleh told Libya 218 television on Tuesday.

“The intervention is clear,” said Saleh, adding that “the international community intends to interfere in Libya to serve its own private interests.”
