The House of Representatives (HoR) in eastern Libyan city Tobruk decided to delay voting on the law for the constitution referendum two weeks, tasing the consultations commission to devise a new mechanism for voting that will be obliging to all the MPs. 

Today’s session was another failure on many levels, including lack of full quorum and the fact that the MPs could not get the law passed in the current critical situation the country is going through.

A brawl between two MPs also took a place during the gesso on Tuesday, with one accusing the other of receiving foreign currency bonuses for doing nothing.

Libyan activists and social media users were so depressed to see the inaction of the HoR continuing without any development or efforts for a better decision0making by the MPs.
