The Head of the High Council of State, Khaled Al-Mashri, expressed his rejection to the House of Representatives’ vote of confidence in the new government led by Fathi Bashagha.
Al-Mashri said in a press statement published by the council’s media office Tuesday evening that “The House of Representatives’ granting of confidence to a new government is a violation of the political agreement.”
Al-Mashri indicated in his statement, that “the High Council of State had confirmed its rejection of the steps taken by the House of Representatives on its own, and the Council will have a session next Thursday to take the necessary measures towards these violations, saying they confirm that the continued closure of the constitutional circuit of court is a crime and a denial of justice.”
It should be noted that the House of Representatives granted confidence – in its official session held on Tuesday in Tobruk – to the new government headed by Fathi Bashagha with 92 votes.
The government is headed by Fathi Bashagha, in addition to his three deputies, Ali Al-Qatrani, Salem Al-Zadma, and Khaled Al-Osta, while the number of ministerial portfolios reached 29, along with 6 state ministers.
