Cyrenaica Bloc in HoR rejects UN-backed National Congress
A group of members of the House of Representatives (HoR) calling themselves " Cyrenaica Bloc" confirmed their rejection to the National Congress proposed by the UN envoy Ghassan Salam, stressing that they will not recognize the recommendations or outcomes of this body.
In a statement on Wednesday, the members expressed their surprise at the absence of any reference in Salame's statements to the issue of what they called "the equitable distribution of wealth".
They also insisted that the eastern region is in dire need of a government of national unity assisted by the oil revenues especially that the borrowing policy is undermining the economic situation and goes for military expenditures at the expense of the reconstruction and services.
