Libyan Justice and Construction Party hails convening of the HoR
Justice and Construction Party in Libya has welcomed the convening of the House of Representatives on last Monday after a long delay and lack of quorum.
“We welcome the convening of the House of Representatives after the absurd break that lasted several months. Also, we call on its members to play their part, to correct its path according to the political agreement (specially articles 16, 17 and 18), and to take the democratic steps stipulated by the political agreement and which are required of them as a legislative authority set up by the political agreement.” The party said in a statement Saturday.
It also added that it supports the Presidential Council of the Government of National Accord’s commitment to its legal position as granted by the political agreement, pointing out that it urges the GNA to put its house in order, work on resolving the most important security and economic issues, fight terrorism in all parts of the country, and achieve national reconciliation.
The Justice and Construction party also called on the international community to continue its political and diplomatic support for the Presidential Council and the political agreement and to strictly refrain from dealing with any other parallel organizations, opponents or groups.
“The Party calls on the international community to take a clear position towards some countries that are clearly playing negative role towards the political agreement by supporting parties that reject and obstruct the implementation of the agreement’s provisions.” The statement concluded.
