Libyan HoR member Abu Shagour resigns
The member of the Libyan Tobruk-based House of Representatives (HoR) Mustafa Abu Shagour resigned on Sunday due to the “obstructing policy to word the Libyan political Agreement by the HoR.”
Abu Shagour said on his Facebook page that his resignation isn’t an evasion from responsibility, but a confession of inability to achieve what he was elected to do by the public.
“We tried to do something for making Libya a modern state, but we could not reform this legislative body.” Abu Shagour added.
“I made many consultations before I decided to resign and I contacted officials from Sooq Jumoua in Tripoli, from where I got elected, to let them know of my decision.” He explained.
He added that the HoR has been an obstacle to the implementation of the political agreement and has become crippled and unable to to have a full quorum session in a year and a half to tackle people’s issues.
