“Bouznika understandings” stir controversy in Libya

The controversy increased over the understandings of the House of Representatives and the High Council of State regarding the sovereign positions, which were mentioned in (Article 15) of the political agreement signed in the Moroccan “Skhirat” town in December 2015.

The seven sovereign positions were distributed geographically, sponsoring the so-called “three historical regions of Libya”, “Tripoli, Cyrenaica, and Fezzan”, but this division was a point of controversy that stopped dozens of readers of the political scene.

The region of Cyrenaica won the central bank and administrative control, and the region of Tripoli, the Court of Auditors and the Electoral Commission, while Fezzan had a judicial council, and then this distribution was the focus of discussions and deliberations.

Meanwhile, those who follow the issue read it in terms of gains and losses, saying granting Cyrenaica the Central Bank is considered a loss to political Islam, in contrast to those who said that the issue of gains and losses was not considered by the delegations of “HoR and HCS”, and that the work would be harmonious, given that they would be within the framework of one authority, and that the most important thing is to take steps to consolidate power and end the division.

The Justice and Construction Party was subjected to a campaign of criticism because some of its members were on the team of the High Council of State. It was said that they abandoned the most important institution, which is the “central bank”, for the politicians of the eastern region, in order for it to be part of Cyrenaica.

There are people who rejected quotas in its general form, and only mentioned general words far from the details about the idea of ​​dividing positions, rejecting the premise, and considering it harmful to the sovereign positions that represent the pillars of the state.

It does not appear that these views will change anything. The delegations of “HoR and HCS” completed the merits, and reached the results they wanted, which they previously believed would end disputes and unify institutions.
