Libya: Anti-GNA members in HoR lambast Kobler, PC
A group of lawmakers of Libya’s internationally recognized House of Representatives (HoR) has fired shots at head of UNSMIL and at the Presidency Council (PC); accusing them of behaving pompously and of corruption.
The 71-member group gathered under the banner of the National Sovereignty Bloc (NSB) rapped Martin Kobler for his arrogance. For the 71 lawmakers, Kobler behaves as if “he were real governor of Libya, and running the country according to his whims,” reports say.
HoR has repeatedly delayed the recognition of the UN-backed Government of National Accord (GNA) birthed in Morocco in December under the Libyan Political Agreement (LPA) signed by rival parties.
The HoR based in the eastern part of the country regards the GNA as an outside-imposed government.
The NSB did not spare the Presidency Council led by Prime Minister Faiez Serraj. For the anti-GNA bloc, the PC is using bribe to win over politicians and or their relatives by giving them positions.
The accusations, which were formulated on Sunday, came as various rival political figures met in Tunis to try to save the LPA put in danger as the political process is in a stalemate.
But the Tunis talks stumbled upon the structure of the future army and changes to the Libyan Political Agreement (LPA) as suggested by HoR.
