Speaker of the Libyan House of Representatives (HoR), Aqila Saleh, said the parliament received confirmed information that the Government of National Unity (GNU) had spent more than 50 billion Libyan Dinar (LYD), over $11 billion, since taking over power.
Saleh confirmed the formation of committees to investigate GNU regarding its huge financial expenditures during the past months.
He pointed out that HoR has the right to withdraw the confidence that it granted to GNU, but the previous decrees of the Government will not be nullified, mentioning the marriage and family grants decrees specifically.
“I received a call from Jan Kubis, Head of the UN Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL), who thought that Government had been sacked, but I explained to him that it will continue as a caretaker government and must abide by the road map,” the Speaker stated.
“The UN envoy asked me to issue parliamentary election law as soon as possible. He has no right to interfere in the work of HoR, but in fact, the man understands the matter, and I have made everything clear to him, that the government will continue, and we are committed to the road map,” he added.
