Tripoli, 2 September 2013:
The Justice and Construction Party (J&C) has called upon the General National Congress (GNC) to investigate . . .[restrict]Prime Minister Ali Zeidan on the “government’s poor performance”.
The head of the J&C, Mohamed Sawan, has said that the GNC should give a vote of no confidence to Zeidan’s government if it is found to have performed poorly.
“The J&C Party feels that it is important to question Zeidan, especially after the government has failed to resolve some important issues, such as the assassinations and explosions in Benghazi,” J&C spokesman Saleem Beitalmal told the Libya Herald.
Libya is in a difficult phase at the moment, Beitalmal said. He added that it was strange that the Interior Ministry, which he pointed out “plays an important role in maintaining security,” now has no minister, after the resignation of the previous two ministers.
The GNC should remove Zeidan if he fails to provide convincing answers on the assassinations, the shutdown of the country’s oil fields, and the lack of security, said Beitalmall. [/restrict]
