GNC Stormed AGAIN After Zidan Cabinet Announcement
Well, hold on to your hats, folks! I’ve been planning a party to watch the U.S. presidential election, but I should have had everyone over to watch today’s GNC session debating Ali Zidan’s cabinet choices instead – much more action-packed. Aside from the need for different political interests to learn the value of compromise, the most critical lesson surrounding the announcement of Abushagur’s cabinet was the need for the GNC to foster security in Libya, starting with their own assembly hall. Sadly, this lesson was not taken to heart. Unbelievably, protestors were once again able to storm the GNC and interrupt today’s debate! You can read the Libya Herald’s report here – GNC debate of Zidan government halted as Tripoli thuwar storm building.
The Tripoli thuwar stormed the GNC and disrupted the proceedings of the afternoon session complaining that their area was underrepresented in the new Zidan government…It has also been claimed that amongst the group were Salafists protesting the appointment of Abdulsalam Mohammed Abusaad as minister of religious affairs.
