[Libya Observer] The Libyan High Council of State (HCS) found the statements of the UNSMIL's Head Ghassan Salame at the 39th Human Rights Council round "strange."|
HCS said in a statement that Salame's accusation that 2012 and 2014 elected MPs of the HCS and the House of Representatives only aspire for staying in their posts forever is untrue.
"We remind the UNSMIL and Salame of the HCS's stance in support of the political agreement and the communication with the HoR for any efforts to reshuffle the Presidential Council and appoint incumbents for state sovereign posts, thus leading to uniting the fragmented institutions." The statement reads, adding that its efforts always were for ending the transitional phase and entering the constitutional one.
The HCS also reminded Salame that it was the first to propose a constitution referendum law and then sent it to the HoR, hence expressing on more than one occasion that it is with the efforts that establish Libya as a state with a permanent constitution.
"We have not been a hindrance at any time to the political process, so we reject the statement of head of the UNSMIL." It explained.
Salame accused the current political bodies of having no true will to end the crisis in Libya, calling on HCS and HoR to do their bits or the UNSMIL will fall back upon some other plans.
Visiting Zuwara on Sunday, Salame said hoped he would not resort to other plans due to any upcoming prolongations by the political bodies regarding electoral laws, saying government posts are not an everlasting privilege because the UNSMIL sees such ideology as undemocratic.
