Last month, the Libyan Parliament stated that it refuses to join the talks called for by the UN, describing the meetings as “obstructing the political solution in the country.”
Fathi Al-Marimi, the Media Advisor for Saleh, said that the Parliament “refuses to engage in the UN’s talks, without the designated government.”
He considered that a “hindrance to the political solution agreed upon by Saleh, and the UN Envoy Abdoulaye Bathily.
Al-Marimi stressed that the Parliament also rejected the attendance of the Prime Minister of the Government of National Unity (GNU), Abdel-Hamid Dbaiba at the talks.
He pointed out that electoral laws mandate the election of a new President for the country.
Regarding the selection of the new Prime Minister, he explained that the candidate must garner support from 20 MP’s and 10 members of the High Council of State (HCS), before a vote in the Parliament is undertaken.
