The Speaker of the Libyan House of Representatives (HoR) Aqila Saleh said the HoR is willing to withdraw confidence in the Government of National Unity if Prime Minister Abdul-Hamid Dbeibah doesn’t attend the questioning session on Monday.
Speaking to UAE’s Al-Ghad TV Channel, Saleh said he himself would call for a no-confidence vote because not attending the session by Dbeibah means disrespect.
“Dbeibah has no excuse and he should attend the session where MPs will ask questions about the government’s negligence in state institutions’ unification, electricity, and Coronavirus among other files.” Saleh added.
Saleh said the withdrawal of confidence is up to the MPs and it is their legal right, adding that even if the Prime Minister has overseas visits, he must attend the HoR questioning session as it is more important, denying that there is a willingness to form a parallel government.
He also said the questioning of the government is a legal right of the HoR and has nothing to do with holding elections, which must be held on time.
