Tobruk Rejects UN Proposal

Libya's internationally-recognized parliament, the Tobruk-based House of Representatives (HoR), has reportedly decided to reject a United Nations proposal for a Government of National Accord (GNA).

Reuters quotes parliament member and general rapporteur Saleh Ghalma as saying that "the majority of the HoR members rejected the U.N.-proposed unity government in today's meeting and called for the peace dialogue to be continued."

But parliament spokesman Faraj Hashem [Farraj Abu Hashem] told the news agency that the deal had not been voted on: "The president of the House, Aghila Saleh, read a statement and left, this is an arbitrary decision."

The Tripoli-based parliament has not yet decided on the proposal.
