The Supreme Finance Committee held a meeting in Tripoli on Monday to discuss providing urgent financial support to the residents of the flood-hit areas affected by Storm Daniel.

According to sources close to the committee, 14 out of 17 members attended the first meeting of the committee since the disaster, after the committee terminated the membership of the Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Libya, Marai Al-Barasi, on September 3.

The meeting aims to establish a mechanism for reconstruction and allocate urgent financial support to residents of the affected areas and rental housing or temporary homes for the displaced.

The Presidential Council seeks to form a joint reconstruction committee, with international approval, to overcome the crisis of government duplication and the conflict between the two governments over leadership of reconstruction efforts.
