He also stressed that his representatives in the Geneva Dialogue are chosen by him and under the dome of Parliament, stressing the need to clearly define the tasks of the Dialogue Committees, the duration of time and the mechanisms of their work.

In addition, the Libyan parliament demanded that no government be approved and approved unless approved by it and that the number of its representatives be not equal to the number of representatives of the advisory council.

This position came hours after the UN envoy announced that “there is a real will to start negotiations” between the two warring parties, with their intention to meet for talks in Geneva with the aim of reaching a permanent ceasefire in the country.
