Takala renews commitment to outcomes of Cairo meeting with HoR Speaker

The Head of the High Council of State (HCS), Mohammed Takala, has renewed his commitment to the Cairo meeting’s outcomes which were agreed upon with the Speaker of the House of Representatives (HoR), Aqila Saleh, including the agreement on the formation of a new government.

Takala said in an interview with the BBC that the 6+6 committee, which is tasked with drafting election laws, had deviated from its course of work after returning to Tripoli and Benghazi and introducing many amendments to the consensus reached in Bouznika, Morocco.

The Head of the HCS pointed out that disagreements with the Speaker of the HoR over how to manage the Libyan state could be resolved through dialogue, adding that the HoR-designated government wasn’t legitimate from the beginning and that the HoR had recognized it within the framework of what he called “political wrangling”.

Takala has explained that dealing with the Prime Minister of the Government of National Unity (GNU) Abdul Hamid Dbeibah comes within the framework of international recognition of his government.

He indicated that the UN envoy Abdoulaye Bathily’s resignation was due to his inability to withstand foreign interference, adding that Bathily did not attempt to bring the views of the HoR and the HCS closer, thus failing to appreciate what the two chambers reached under the auspices of the Arab League.
