HoR Spokesman says he strongly supports GNA
The Spokesman of the Tobruk-based House of Representatives, Faraj Abu Hashim, said Wednesday that he is strongly in favour of the Government of National Accord, refuting what the media said about his withdrawal from the pro-GNA party.
Abu Hashim explained that Cyrenaica is still as before in support of the GNA and it has five ministerial portfolios, saying those who say that the GNA is a trusteeship government are themselves craving for obtaining some ministerial portfolios and changing some already appointed ones.
“After successfully reaching quorum, the HoR members have picked Ghadames to hold a meeting to endorse the GNA officially, pointing out that such a step was taken after being obstructed by force in Tobruk from holding a lot of meetings.” Abu Hashim added.
He said that the Speaker, Aqilah Saleh, has chosen to side with a certain party and is going to attend the Ghadames meeting as an ordinary member not as the HoR Speaker.
