The boycotting member of the Presidential Council (PC) Ali Al-Gotrani and the withdrawing member Fathi Al-Mijibri said eastern members or as he put it “Cyrenaica MPs” have become outside the Libyan Political Agreement signed in Skhirat on December 17, 2015.

Al-Gotrani said given the current impasse in the political situation and the control of militias on Tripoli, “we confirm that the Cyrenaica members of the political agreement are now out of it.”

“I urge, therefore; the House of Representatives members of Cyrenaica region and the region’s elders as well as civil societies and activists to meet in Benghazi next Thursday to take vital decision regarding the Libyan Political Agreement. ” Al-Gotrani added.

According to a televised statement for the two PC members, the emergency meeting will discuss the withdrawal of the Cyrenaica MPs from the PC and the Libyan Political Agreement as well as the current developments in the political scene.
