Benghazi, 25 August 2014:
The Justice and Construction Party, the political wing of Libya’s Muslim Brotherhood, has denounced the House . . .[restrict]of Representatives’ decision to label the Misratans and others those taking part in the Libya Dawn Operation in Tripoli as terrorists.
In its Facebook page statement, the J&C claimed that the decision had created divisions within the HoR and widened the divide between the House and the public.
“The Justice and Construction party had previously warned of the consequences of wrong decisions that would inevitably result in the House losing public support at extraordinary at a time when it is in need,” the party stated. “But the insistence of the House to ignore that advice has increased its isolation, as seen by the increasing popular rejection of it.”
The J&C citied “mass demonstrations in major cities of the country” as evidence of the House’s supposed waning popularity.
In its statement, the party did not point out that it was now supporting the restoration of the widely reviled General National Congress as opposed to of the recently elected House which, unlike Congress, it does not control.
