High Council of State (HCS) member, Saad bin Sharada, said Monday that the planned meeting between the heads of the House of Representatives (HoR) and the HCS in Zintan city was organized by the UN mission, which later decided to postpone the meeting without referring to either council.

"The UN mission Head, Abdoulaye Bathily, since assuming his duties, informed the political parties that his strategy was based on holding political meetings inside Libya and not abroad," Bin Sharada said in media statements.

The HCS member denied that the meeting, which was scheduled for last Sunday, was the result of an agreement and coordination between the HoR Speaker, Aqila Saleh, and the HCS Head, Khaled Al-Mishri.

In a related context, MP Salem Quneidi said Saleh is eying to head the Presidential Council, while Khaled Al-Mishri wants to be the next prime minister.

According to Quneidi, Saleh and Al-Mishri disclosed their desire to obtain these positions in previous official sessions, adding that any agreement is doomed to fail as both are seeking narrow interests.
