Libya’s Parliament pass no confidence vote for unity govt
Libyan government on 'edge of a cliff' in front of confidence vote
Libya’s parliament said on Tuesday it had withdrawn confidence from the unity government, though it would continue to operate as a caretaker administration, signalling a threat to the months-long peace process.
The vote in the House of Representatives exemplifies the wrangling between rival factions and state bodies that has plagued U.N.-backed efforts to resolve Libya’s decade-long crisis by establishing a unity government and holding national elections.
Prime Minister Abdulhamid Dbeibah addressed supporters in Tripoli late on Tuesday, accusing some parliament members of being obstructionists who bring evil and destruction to the country.
“Legitimacy rests with you the people… it is you who will decide in the elections,” he said.
