Tripoli, 16 August 2013:
Prime Minister Ali Zeidan has condemned the storming of the GNC by some elements who took . . .[restrict]part in Tuesday’s otherwise peaceful demonstration by Amazighs protesting at the fact that just two seats have been reserved for them on the 60-member Comstitutional Commission.
Speaking at Wednesday’s press conference, Zeidan denounced the use of force as a means to achieve political aims, saying that the GNC was of a great importance to Libyans. Whatever their differences or views, he said, the GNC represented the public’s and the state’s legitimacy.
Echoing and supporting the similar condemnation expressed by the GNC President Nuri Abusahmain, himself an Amazigh, Zeidan said that Libyans should give total support to the GNC.
The Prime Minister added that Libya was facing many challenges at present and that Libyans had to hold on to the legitimacy of the GNC. It was the only legitimate elected body they had.
