38 HoR Members out of 200 vote against MoUs between Libya and Turkey

38 Members of the House of Representatives (HoR) – out of 200 – have met today in Benghazi; in the absence of Speaker Aqila Saleh and his deputy, to vote for rejecting MoUs that the Libyan legitimate Government of National Accord (GNA) signed with Turkey.

The HoR members –  lacking full quorum – have voted in Benghazi to prosecute the Head of the Presidential Council Fayez Al-Sarraj and the Foreign Minister Mohammed Sayala for “Treason” because of signing the MoUs with Ankara.

The Members also voted on Saturday to allocate 20 billion dinars to support Khalifa Haftar in his aggression on Tripoli, which has been raging on since April 2019.

It’s worth mentioning that the HoR Members convening in Benghazi are pro-Haftar and are backers to Haftar’s war on Tripoli, while the rest of the Members of the HoR are convening in Tripoli as they oppose Haftar’s aggression on the Libyan capital.

Turkish President Erdogan and Head of the Presidential Council signed on November 27 two MoUs in security and military cooperation and in maritime boundaries demarcation to secure the rights of the two countries as per the international law.
