The Address | Benghazi – Libya
BENGHAZI – Speaker of the Libyan House of Representatives (HoR), Aqila Saleh, confirmed that there are no differences between him and the General Commander of the Libyan National Army (LNA), Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, indicating that his political initiative did not contradict Haftar’s recent statements.
Saleh explained in statements to al-Hurra TV that his initiative for a political solution in Libya was based on Libyan and social norms, pointing out that Libya is linked to the international community and is not isolated from it.
He pointed out that this initiative aims to solve the Libyan crisis politically and based on historical backgrounds, noting that the post-independence period of Libya witnessed the formation of the Constitution Committee by twenty representatives from each of the three regions of Libya, and that the Senate during that period was composed of an equal number of members representing the three regions of Libya (Cyrenaica, Fezzan, and Tripolitania).
Field Marshal Hafter had announced two days ago that LNA would take the responsibility of managing the country’s affairs after the mandate by the Libyan people for LNA to lead the country for next phase.
