Libyan PM renders Parliament’s non-confidence vote as “invalid”

The Libyan Prime Minister of the Government of National Unity (GNU), Abdul-Hamid Dbeibah, said in a speech on Tuesday evening at Tripoli’s Martyrs Square, where hundreds of Libyans gathered, that the House of Representatives (HoR) was leading a smearing campaign against the GNU.

Hours after the withdrawal of confidence in the GNU by the HoR, Dbeibah said the Libyan people are the ones responsible for choosing their leadership and legitimate government at the polls, adding that his government is working on rescuing the country from wars and leading it to unity.

He also reiterated that not all of the HoR members had agreed to the decision of withdrawal, calling on the Libyan people to take to the streets on Friday to express their opinions about their rights to have their say in elections to choose their leadership, without the monopoly of decisions by a group of MPs at the HoR.

The spokesman for the HoR, Abdullah Blehiq, said Tuesday that the withdrawal vote was passed by majority of 89 members out of 113 attending the session, a revelation that proved the vote to be illegal, according to both MPs and politicians.
