Tripoli, 8 February 2014:
Two members of the General National Congress have denied that they have resigned in a development . . .[restrict]that has cast doubt on the validity of a list of 21 purported resignations circulating on social media.
Members of Congress for Murzuq ,Taher Mohamed Makni and Zainab Shetah Al-Hamidi, both of whose names appear on the list, strongly rejected reports of their resignations to the Libya Herald.
“I personally deny what has been reported on Facebook and other media about my resignation,” Makni said, stating that he had never considered resigning from Congress. Hamidi also refuted the claims saying she had been surprised to see her name on the list.
GNC spokesman Omar Hemidan told this paper that the Presidency of the Congress had so far received only two official resignations recently, those of the Derna National Forces Alliances Congresswoman, Fariha Al-Barkawi, and Benghazi Congressman, Ibrahim Al-Gharyani.
