The Libyan House of Representatives (HoR) has sent a document of questioning topics for the Government of National Unity’s ministers, including accusations of failure to handle electricity, Coronavirus and cash at the banks’ problems, in addition to failure in unifying state institutions and negligence of remarks to amend the 2021 budget bill.
HoR questions demand answers regarding the reasons behind shutting down borders with Tunisia, saying it has badly affected Libyan-Tunisian relations and wonder about the basis for the Libyan Prime Minister’s claim that neighboring countries are exporting terrorism to Libya.
They also blame the government for not allocating a separate budget for Khalifa Haftar’s militias and for not recognizing them as legitimate armed forces.
The HoR called for naming a Defense Minister and withdrawal of foreign forces as well as ending “the public presence of Syrian fighters in Tripoli”, as well as explaining why over three billion dinars of foreign currency purchasing transactions were allocated to the Marriage, and Construction’s Support Funds outside the 2021 budget without permission from the Presidential Council – as per the law.
The HoR also demanded answers about why the government is keeping the Chairman of the National Oil Corporation, Mustafa Sanalla, in his position despite available replacement, adding that the Oil Minister sent the HoR decisions issued by the Prime Minister without being referred to the HoR, including orders to buy livestock for Eid Al-Adha sacrifice for low-income Libyans and a billion dinars’ allocation for marriage.
