Libya govt meeting soon to back power-sharing plan: speaker

President of the Libyan House of Representative Aguila Saleh attends the closing session of the Arab League summit in the Egyptian Red Sea resort of Sharm El-Sheikh on March 29, 2015Libya’s internationally recognised parliament will meet “in the coming weeks” to give its backing to a UN-backed unity government aimed at ending chaos in the country, its speaker said Sunday. An agreement for a power-sharing unity government was inked in December by lawmakers from Libya’s rival parliaments but neither administration has so far formally backed the UN-brokered accord. “The parliament will meet in the coming weeks to consider an amendment to its constitutional declaration to give a vote of confidence to the national unity government,” Aguila Saleh said during a visit to Cairo.
