Civil Registry Authority rejects Salvation Government’s order to activate the civil registration system
The Civil Registry Authority (CRA) in the western region has rejected the decision of the Interior Ministry of the Salvation Government related to forming a committee to reactivate the civil registration system and the exchange of its data with the National Identification Number Project.
The member the CRA’s administration, Mohammed Al-Ahmar, told the press that the western branch will only act upon the decisions made by the CRA’s presidency according to the specialties given to it by the law.
The CRA’s southern branch also rejected the SG’s order, saying in a statement Monday that it is going to abide by the orders of the CRA’s presidency as well as the CRA’s data and documentation department only.
Similarly, Jalu city’s Civil Registry Office in the east refused last Sunday to deal with the Interior Ministry’s committee, urging the three governments in Libya to stop meddling in the CRA’s affairs to maintain the unity of the country.
Last April, the SG’s Interior Ministry formed a committee of six engineers tasked to reactivate the civil registration system after it had been deactivated by the CRA in protest of the dismissal of its Head, Mohammed Bukir, by the SG.
