Tripoli, 21 November 2013:
Most members of Congress remain deeply unsatisfied with the government’s answers to their questions on Tuesday, . . .[restrict]said a senior congressman. They were also unhappy that prime minister Ali Zeidan cut short the session, saying that he had other important duties to which he had to attend.
This assertion was made by the Head of the Congressional defence committee, Hamed Hatta.
“In fact,the answers made by members of the government did not convince most the Congress members” Hatta told the Libya Herald.
He said that it was his understanding, that by limiting the questions to just 13, the government had sought to avoid past chaotic discussions, when it was called before the GNC.
Hatta continued that one key issue was the government’s delay in enforcing Law 27, requiring all unauthorised armed units to quit Libyan cities.
He said that when responding to the GNC’s questions, Zeidan and his ministers had produced excuses, not answers.
Hatta said at last night’s meeting of the Congressional defence committee had pressed both the presidency of the General Staff and the Ministry of Defence, to see what measures were being taken for the withdrawal of the armed formations from Tripoli.
